ABSTRACT

Mining generates a negative impact on the areas after stopping mining activities. Causing mines closed because of their specific, multiple and varied adverse effects on the environment by land degradation, by vertical and horizontal surface and sliding heaps and tailings ponds; polluted surface waters and groundwater; hydrodynamic imbalance of groundwater; negative influences on the atmosphere, flora and fauna; chemical pollution of the soil. Mining gold mine Barza - Brad is currently stopped, the mine was closed. The paper aims to identify possible sources of pollution from mining this area closed, for an assessment of the impact of pollution and environmental components.
