Case study: Stock Management Plan for Enhance Place Mine

First Field Environment was engaged by Enhance Place Mine to prepare a Stock Management Plan and provide guidance in relation to stock management on the property.

Enhance Place Mine operated as an open cut coal mine from 1997 until its closure in June 2005. The former Enhance Place Mine has been rehabilitated and revegetated to pasture, and is now grazed by miniature horses, horses, ponies and cows by the new property owners.

The report produced by First Field Environmental provides the property owners with a plan for maintaining the land as pasture for grazing and to promote appropriate stocking rates in accordance with the land capability. The preliminary report was provided to Enhance Place Mine and the property owners to facilitate discussion about the feasibility of land management practices in terms of desired land use.
