New Oakleigh Mine

Mining at the New Oakleigh Mine, west of Ipswich (Figure 8), dates back to the early 1900s, although large scale operations commenced in 1948. New Hope Group purchased New Oakleigh in 1999 and operated it until January 2013 (New Hope Group, 2014), when it was closed due to declining production rates (Mining Australia, 2013). Backfilling of the former mine pits commenced in August 2012. These will be contoured in preparation for revegetation and rehabilitation (New Hope Group, 2014).
