ABSTRACT

Contribution notifies of the variant solutions of the recovery of consequences of
chemical uranium mining in the Czech Republic in the Straz pod Ralskem region.
Remediation is realized by a state company DIAMO. In the chemical extraction period
over four million tons of sulfuric acid and other chemicals were injected into the
ground, whereas approximately 370 million cubic meters of groundwater were
contaminated. Currently, the contaminated water is pumped from the underground to
the surface and it leads to liquidation of contaminants, or economically useful products
are produced. The article reports on two versions of a procedure for the rehabilitation
and settlement of damage. For the first (advantageous) variant, the remediation
objectives will be achieved in 2032, then the operating costs of rehabilitation and
liquidation of consequences of uranium mining in the area of the Stráž pod Ralskem
will be CZK 32,527 billion (€ 1,348 billion) and the investment cost will be of CZK 1,485 billion (€ 61,5 million).

Keywords: chemical uranium mining, Czech Republic, Straz pod Ralskem region, remediation
