ABSTRACT

The concept of management of open pit sand mine for recreation and health purposes is
presented in this paper. To minimise the costs a project has been launched while the
mine is still in operation, in order to take advantage of the existing technical
opportunities. The use of natural conditions i.e. post-mining water basin, forests, salt
from copper mine located in the neighbourhood and sources of renewable energy is
planned. Architectonic concept and solutions concerning the protection of biological life
in the water reservoir are presented. Some hazards and protection means connected with
eutrophication are discussed as well. The project also addresses Corporate Social
Responsibility issues.

Keywords: open pit mine, post-mining management, recreation, health
