    Q: Will the financial assurances for rehabilitation increase?

    A review of the bonds held by the Government for each of the three Latrobe Valley brown coal mines has recently been completed and the bonds have been increased significantly from their previous levels. It was recognised that the bonds were too low by the Hazelwood Mine Fire Inquiry Board and the recent increase has been in response to a recommendation of the Inquiry Board to review and correct them. In the future, as progressive rehabilitation at each mine is completed, the bonds may reduce as a reflection of the lower remaining costs for rehabilitation.
