ABSTRACT



This paper presents results of physical chemistry research on solutes leached from mine waste dumps. Radioactivity research of that solutes is also included, taking into consideration its usage in earth constructions of hydraulic engineering.

The research was done on samples taken from eight coal mine waste dumps.

Impact on the water environment of that solutes was assessed, together with their radioactivity effect. The conclusion of that research contains guidelines for usage of that mine wastes, concerning also its ecological as

Key words: Mine Wastes, Chemical pollution or radioactivity , Hydraulics Engineering.
