Description :
Mining influences every component of the environment in significant and diverse ways. But even in such a devastated terrain there is evidence of the proper management of post-mining areas and natural self restoration, which paradoxically, owing to mining, appear in the most intensively used economic areas. Investigations included the study of aerial photos, and of archival and contemporary maps at a scale of 1:10 000 from different time periods. Field observations consisted of observing the effects of land restoration as well as geomorphological mapping of the analysed sites.
