  • Bedrock temperatures were measured over a 12-month period (June 2003-July 2004) at 6 sites within the Gruve-7 coal mine in the Adventdalen valley, near Longyearbyen. Temperatures are highest in areas lying beneath the Foxfonna glacier and lowest
  • in areas lying beneath the ice-free, periglacial upland. Episodic seepage of glacial meltwater into the mine is indicated by the presence of ice within joints and fractures in the exposed bedrock of the walls and ceilings of the mine corridor. Air
  • ventilation seems to be affecting bedrock temperatures in the outermost, ice-free parts of the Gruve-7 mine.
  • The development of the anthropogenic relief from the coal mining industry in the Wałbrzych Basin on the ground of the management of waste materials from coal mining in 1975-1996
  • Influence of hard-coal mining as regards changes in the relief of Wałbrzych Basin in the years 1975-1996. The management of waste materials from coal mining has caused an increase in the area of mining spoil heaps of about 783 ha, as well as about
  • a c. 29,8 million m3 increase in volume. Settlement covers about 35 km2 of the Wałbrzych Basin, the area under mine dumps and settlers is actually greater than that of natural forms. - (BJ)

  • The purpose of the study is to analyse the changes resulting from the mining of brown coal. The study examines the natural potential of the sample areas before the extraction of the brown coal and after the recultivation, and it evaluates
  • the natural resources in terms of their suitability for agricultural, forestry, and outdoor recreational uses. The results of this evaluation are combined to serve as a basis for classifying the study areas and delineating units of different degrees
  • of suitability for the various forms of land use before the mining and after the recultivation. The following comparison of the original land potential before coal mining with the final land potential after recultivation permits to determine improvements
  • Challenges for sustainable water use in dolomitic mining regions of South Africa. A case study of uranium pollution, Part I : sources and pathways

  • Point- and non-point sources of U associated with mining activities in the Wonderfonteinspruit catchment, as an example of a dolomitic gold-mining area, as well as pathways of U pollution are discussed. Associated U loads emanating from major
  • sources are estimated. The results suggest that detected levels of U pollution in the catchment are not only caused by century old mining activities but also by current operations and that U pollution of water is likely to continue well beyond the closure

  • Restoring nature in mining areas of the Silesian Upland (Poland)
  • Environmental degradation ; Human impact ; Mining activity ; Nature conservation ; Poland ; Rehabilitation ; Silesia
  • 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
