Module content
Lectures (9h):

1) Introduction and definitions. Mining in Poland and EU. Acceptance of mining activity in driftnet countries – Social Licence to Operate.
2) Types of mining activity and their influence into the environment.
3) Responsibility in the mine-closure, reclamation, redevelopment and revitalisation processes. The scope and mutual relations between these activities.
4) Stages of reclamation: initial, technical, biological. Methods of post-mining land reclamation. The role of plants in reclamation. Fitoremediation and phytomining.
5) Legal basis of the mining and reclamation activities.
6) Financial sources of mine-closure and reclamation.
7) Examples of opportunities for mining-related reclamation and reuse (forest, agricultural, natural, water, recreational, educational, cultural, economic, etc.).

Project classes (6h):

Elaborate the concept of the revitalisation of the post-mining land based on the analysis of conditions and then define the scope of technical and biological reclamation. Calculating the costs of technical and biological reclamation. Basic vocabulary of mining terms especially mining equipment, mining processes, mining objects and mining reclamation.
