ABSTRACT

The results of large-scale (1:25 000) neotectonics mapping within Dniprodzerzhynsk industrial site in the Dnipropetrovsk region of Ukraine are given. Neotectonic mapping was made on the basis of morphosructural methods. The active linear and ring structures at the latest stage of development and summary amplitudes of late Pliocene-Quaternary vertical crustal movements are specified and characterized. Neogeotectonic study of this area allows to determine the degree of influence of recent activity geostructures features and their activation impact on rock properties (physical, mechanical, filtration and other) on which objects of study are located. Therefore it allows to identify possible direction of radionuclides and toxic compounds migration in groundwater aquifers and mines. The location area safety of tailings facilities and uranium production waste of the Dneprodzerzhinsk industrial site by neotectonic criteria is evaluated.

Keywords:neotectonics, linear and ring structures, summary amplitudes of late Pliocene-Quaternary vertical crustal movements, tailings.
