ABSTRACT
In the context of restructuring Romania’s mining industry, a significant volume of
underground spaces and underground mining constructions has remained available,
which can be reused in better economic conditions. The underground deposit named
"Hope" is an underground mining construction which was used for temporary storage of
explosives used in mining in Baia Sprie mining area. With the closure of mines in the
Baia Sprie mining area, the underground deposit "Hope" lost its usefulness and became available. Being located in a favorable area for further development, about 2 km from the center of Baia Sprie, it was bought, with the adjoining land on the surface, by a private entrepreneur.
The entrepreneur aims to equip the underground deposit with a multifunctional space for conferences, performances, exhibitions etc. On the surface, since the surface land is covered by forest and is in a slope, the entrepreneur aims to build an amphitheater and outdoor recreation place. But in order to achieve the proposed arrangements it was first necessary to conduct a study on the stability of the
underground deposit and possibly its influence on the surface. For underground deposit stability analysis the following were chosen: middle geometric leveling method and 3D laser scanning technology, by creating topographic observations over a period of 3 years.
This paper presents the organization and conduct of actual topographic works and
comparative analysis and interpretation of results obtained in the course of cyclic
topographical measurements over three years and the conclusions on the future use of
the underground deposit and related surface area.

Keywords: underground deposit, stability, scanner, reuse.
