Closed Mine Modeling and Assessment of Expected Environmental Impact

Dr. Sknder Lipo, Dr. Arbi Shehu


Abstract: The negative impacts of closed mines are today a worrying problem not only for the environment but also for the people and their hopes for a better life. Increased impacted areas from mining subsidence, creation of new subsidence on abandoned mining works which are often unforeseen streams of contaminated water from mining galleries and gaseous emissions from abandoned mines are today very worrying problems. Measures to control and minimize this negative impact should be initiated by digitizing the measurement documentation for each closed mine. Based on this documentation, mine modeling and geological environment, accompanied with a full description of the phenomenon of rock massive movements should be realized. The assessment of this documentation by specialists in mining subsidence engineering will lead to the designation of areas with increased potential risk for expected environmental impacts of closed mines.


Keywords: Mine subsidence engineering, Rock massive movements, Continuous subsidence and subsidence with ground fractures
