Formatted abstract
This research project was undertaken over two years following completion of a scoping study. The scoping study provided guidance on a number of knowledge management platforms and decision tools for sharing rehabilitation and closure knowledge as well as providing capacity for discussion forums. A wiki-based Mine Rehabilitation and Closure (MRC) knowledge platform was identified as the preferred method for providing the flexibility and functionality required by the Central Queensland Mine Rehabilitation Group (CQMRG). Through this MRC-wiki it was identified that the other decision tools and knowledge management platforms and resources could be linked and made more accessible to practitioners. The objectives of the MRC-wiki are to:

· Guide users to appropriate knowledge, decision support and other management tools already available through ACARP and other sources;
· Capture the long-term knowledge of rehabilitation practitioners and stakeholders in a rehabilitation manual and discussion forum format;
· Encourage discussion and ensure the accessibility of this unpublished knowledge in perpetuity; and
· Be able to be maintained by industry groups, such as the CQMRG over time. It is also possible that the learnings from this review could inform knowledge management in other regions, commodities and disciplines, and thus have a far wider application.

This project was aligned with ACARP's priority area of 'environment and communities' where the aim is to help increase stakeholder confidence in the industry's ability to manage mine rehabilitation and mine closure.
