Spatial information (maps, GIS layers, images) showing:

* Xyz of footprints of underground and open cut from 1980 - 2012, updated once every 4 years (Olympic years), including details of rehabilitated areas if available

* The z dimension (elevation) relative to sea level, i.e. the AHD reference

* Mine water discharge volumes if available between 1980 and 2012, or until mine water pumping ceased, as available.
