40-735(1)  

You can deduct for an income year expenditure you incur in that year to the extent it is on *mining site rehabilitation of:

(b) a *mining building site.

Note 1:

If an amount of the expenditure is recouped, the amount may be included in your assessable income: see Subdivision 20-A.

Note 2:

If Division 250 applies to you and an asset that is land:

(a) if section 250-150 applies - you cannot deduct expenditure you incur in relation to the land to the extent specified under subsection 250-150(3); or
(b) otherwise - you cannot deduct such expenditure.

40-735(2)  

However, a provision of this Act (except Division 8 (which is about deductions)) that expressly prevents or restricts the operation of that Division applies in the same way to this section.

40-735(3)  

However, you cannot deduct expenditure under subsection (1) to the extent that it forms part of the *cost of a *depreciating asset.

40-735(4)  

 View history reference
Mining site rehabilitation is an act of restoring or rehabilitating a site or part of a site to, or to a reasonable approximation of, the condition it was in before *mining and quarrying operations, *exploration or prospecting or *ancillary mining activities were first started on the site, whether by you or by someone else.

40-735(5)  

Partly restoring or rehabilitating such a site counts as mining site rehabilitation (even if you had no intention of completing the work).

40-735(6)  

For a *mining building site, the time when *ancillary mining activities were first started on the site is the earliest time when the buildings, improvements or *depreciating assets concerned were located on the site.
