Ongoing Post-Mining Deficiencies in Raw-Materials Policy and the Repurposing of Mining Infrastructure

The Research Center of Post-Mining (FZN) at the TH Georg Agricola University (THGA) in Bochum/Germany has significantly expanded the range of its research programme since 2019/2020. Its scope has now been broadened by the new research division “Reactivation and Transition”. Research in this division focuses on land development and regional policy, socio-economic aspects and governance of post-mining. Emphasis is less ...

Using Remote Sensing Data for Various Operational Tasks at the NRW Mining Authority

The NRW Mining Authority in Dortmund has been employing remote sensing data as part of its operating remit for quite a number of years. Orthophotographs and laser scanning data have been used by the NRW Geobasis services for basic survey purposes since the start of the millennium and after 2011 these techniques were also applied as risk management tools for ...

Assessment of Remedial Options for Sustainable Operation of the Mirny Mine

The Mirny Mine is located in the northern Russia, where arctic conditions are present year-round. It is a large, open-pit and underground diamond mine with an open-pit depth of approximately 500 m below ground surface and a current depth of the underground mine workings of approximately 900 m below ground surface. From the ground surface, shallow geologic units with approximately ...

Employment Stimulus for Post-Coal Mining Regions

The decision to phase out coal in Germany – and not only there –with the corresponding loss of added value and jobs in coal production and use raises the question of how sufficient new employment stimuli can be created for the regions of the coal industry in the post-coal-mining era. The federal government’s answer is the billions set aside by the ...

Backfilling and Securing of Abandoned Small-Scale Coal Mines with Coal Combustion By-Products (CCBs) Generated at Power Plant Sites and with Domestic CCB’s Generated at Ger District Sites

Mongolia is heavily dependent on coal due to its energy sector. During the last decades in the power plants and the households of the capital city, Ulaanbaatar, coal has been burned from the mines of the subbituminous coal deposits of Nalaikh, Baganuur and Shivee-Ovoo. The calorific value of this subbituminous coal is comparatively low, it contains huge amounts of different ...
