Land rehabilitation in an arid Gobi Desert
using native plant species
The ability to rehabilitate disturbed lands and restore ecosystem processes is of great importance for the mine closure process as functional ecosystems maintain long-term biodiversity and ecosystem service values. The Oyu Tolgoi (OT) Mine, located in Umnugobi Aimag, southern Mongolia, is known for its production of copper (450,000 tonnes per year), making it the largest financial undertaking in Mongolia's history.
