ABSTRACT

Surface mining of mineral resources enables massive excavation, but
results in extensive degradations of a specific area, either in non-reclaimed
state, or left with a significant change in the purpose for which this land
can be used. It is also important that certain mineral resources that were
previously dumped as overburden can, due to changes in economic
conditions, frequently become a valuable raw material. In this paper, the
possibilities for exploitation of the piled technical stone in the former
surface bauxite mine named Stari Gaj (near Obrovac, inland from Zadar)
are discussed as a characteristic example of such an exploitation project.

Key words: mineral resource, environment, dumping, reclaiming
