ABSTRACT
The article studies certain significant aspects of engineering-geological conditions in the specific geological environment of black coal mining dumps in the Ostrava-Karviná Coal District, Czech Republic. This is done via a case study on the Heřmanice Dump, which is one of the largest and most important ones in the Ostrava-Karviná Coal District. However, its subsequent utilisation is limited by the marginal condition of thermal activity. Due to thermal activity, dumps are restricted as sources of secondary building raw materials and it must also be taken into consideration when planning the future use of this environment because of foundation engineering aspects, etc. Learning about such processes is important from the scientific point of view as there are several analogous environments in the Ostrava-Karviná Coal District and other countries also face similar problems.

Keywords: case study, thermal activity, engineering-geological conditions, dump, utilisation, foundation engineering.
