Formatted abstract
A major challenge for today's resource companies is ensuring a positive legacy when a mine closes. MMG is confronting the challenge this year with the end of open-cut zinc production at Century mine in the Gulf of Carpentaria, north-west Queensland. MMG, which acquired Century in 2009, is the fourth owner of the mine since production commenced in 1999. The operation has been a major economic force in the Lower Gulf region, stimulating both direct and indirect changes. In particular, the Gulf Communities Agreement (GCA) between the mine, four traditional owner groups (Waanyi, Mingginda, Gkuthaarn and Kukatj) and the Queensland Government drove socio-economic change for individuals and communities.
