Mining causes significant disturbances of the landscape due to both construction and operation of open pits and underground mines and disposal of ore mining and concentration wastes on the earth’s surface.

The scientific work aims to develop individual issues of organization and the technology of reclaiming disturbed areas of the lithosphere using the example of Kryvyi Rih iron ore basin.

Technical solutions to the problem of the negative effects of underground mines and open pits on the ecosystem and landscape of the territory prioritize intensification of iron ore raw material processing, including wider introduction of technologies for reprocessing off-grade ores, tailings retreatment, wider use of waste rocks (quartz) in construction, introduction of internal overburden stockpiling technologies. Promising biological reclamation technologies include stimulation of natural overgrowth processes on the surface of dumps and tailings facilities by remote hydro-application of a fertile substrate mixed with mineral fertilizers and seeds of perennial grasses, shrubs and arboreous plants to the surface of technogenic objects.
