ABSTRACT

Coal exploitation lead major changes on surface and consequently a major impact for the
population. Protection of the surface land underground mining works is provided by
means of supporting pillars. Thus rehabilitation of land affected and reduce or eliminate
the effects of pollution are major problems in the closure of mining activity. For this
purpose we analysis the impact on the environment in it is necessary to achieve
ecological rehabilitation measures for the affected areas. Present research is a summary
of a comprehensive study related to mine closure activity in the National Hard Coal
Company (CNH) Petrosani and the rehabilitation of the area after mines closure.
