ABSTRACT
Valorisation of mineral deposits is a tool to achieve a balance between the requirements of spatial planning and the protection of non-renewable natural resources. It is the basis to determine the most valuable deposits whose protection should be a priority. The purpose of this paper is to present the environmental valorisation of documented mineral deposits and areas of forecasting their occurrence in selected municipalities of Malopolska province, the southern Poland. The subject of valorisation will be common mineral deposits: sands, gravels and clays of building ceramics. Based on the analysis of cartographic materials, documentation and testing of land will be performed environment valorisation based on the occurrence of protected areas and facilities, and existing and planned land use of the area above the deposits of minerals. This assessment will help to determine the attractiveness of the areas studied in terms of nvironmental conditions and the extent of possible operating restrictions. The results of valorisation should be helpful and used in the preparation of planning documentation of analysed area sites, defining the destiny.
