Energy Resources of Australia Ltd





Ranger Mine, Northern Territory

Energy Resources of Australia Ltd (ERA) owns the Ranger Mine near the town of Jabiru in the Northern Territory, Australia. In January 2021 ERA ceased all mining and processing activities at Ranger after 40 years of operation. It was Australia’s longest continually operating uranium oxide producer.

ERA is committed to delivering a positive legacy for Traditional Owners and for all Australians for the future. ERA’s Ranger Mine Closure Plan outlines the path for progressive rehabilitation, which began in 1981.

ERA's shares are publicly held and traded on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) with Rio Tinto currently holding 86.3% of ERA's shares.

On 3 April 2024, we entered into a Management Services Agreement (MSA) with ERA to manage the Ranger Rehabilitation Project. The MSA will build on ERA’s existing rehabilitation work with our technical expertise in designing, scoping and executing closure projects, including stakeholder and delivery partner relationships. Under the MSA, we aim to work with ERA to complete the Ranger Rehabilitation Project in the safest and most efficient way possible, consistent with the wishes of the Mirrar People, and to a standard that will establish an environment similar to the adjacent Kakadu National Park.

“With the signing of this agreement, we are pleased to be able to directly provide more closure and project delivery experience and know-how to this critical task.”
Kellie Parker, Rio Tinto Chief Executive, Australia
