Topsoil Management

We ensure topsoil stripping is undertaken in accordance with site soil conditions and that the integrity of topsoil resources is retained. We plan topsoil stockpile locations to minimise erosion, encourage vegetation cover and consider water ponding and flow. 

We undertake direct topsoil placement on landforms wherever possible and spread topsoil with due care with regard to depth, in order to meet rehabilitation requirements. Throughout all topsoil-handling activities, we use dust suppression and frequently survey topsoil regions to ensure a current inventory is available at all times.
