ABSTRACT
The elimination of the environmental burdens currently represents one of the most serious problems. Thermally active spoil heaps have a detrimental effect on the environment. The article deals with the possibilities how to suppress thermal activity and subsequent recultivation of the spoil heaps which occur in connection with coal mining and coal preparation. The report describes the sanation of the spoil heaps of the Tuchlovice, Schoeller and Katerina coal mines. Based on the knowledge gained during the implementation, there are designed series of interconnected activities of the recultivation process which minimizes the risk of failure of proposed sanation methods.

Keywords: coal waste heap, thermal aktivity, thermal monitoring, reclamation
