VUJIć, S.; CVEJIć, J.; MILJANOVIć, I. and PETROVSKI, A.. Project solution for land reclamation and spatial arrangement of the 'Srebro' open pit mine at the Fruška Gora National Park. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2011, vol.111, n.5, pp.365-370. ISSN 2411-9717.
The exploitation of stone (trachyte) at the 'Srebro' open pit mine, located on the northern slopes of the Fruška Gora National Park (Serbia) central area begun in 1964. Stone exploitation in this locality does not endanger the environment in an ecological sense, does not pose a threat to plants and animals, and apart from the terrain configuration changes, it did not leave behind permanent consequences to the environment. Projects for permanent cessation of mining operations and for land reclamation and spatial arrangement were completed in these circumstances. The paper gives a short review of the condition at the open pit mine; furthermore, the key problems and basic demands are presented, together with a concept of technical and biological land reclamation and the spatial arrangement of the mining complex.
