The invention relates to the technical reclamation career grooves, remaining after the extraction of building stone and other subsurface minerals.

There is a method of recovery of disturbed lands in open field development (1), selected as a prototype, includes separate recess, moving and storage in separate tape stockpiles of topsoil and overburden, the development of career fields, mined-out space to the border of the upper level of groundwater construction waste, similar in composition to natural minerals with different particle size fractions, in layers with subsequent compaction of each layer, packing: draining layer and the layer of fertile soil.

The disadvantage of this method is the extraction of large volumes of soil to create the fertile soil layer, which in turn leads to the formation of large areas of disturbed land, rising labor costs and a significant increase in the cost of the rehabilitation works.

The present invention reduces the labor and cost of the rehabilitation works. For this purpose, in the way of restoration of worked-out quarries, including separate excavation, movement and storage of topsoil and overburden, the development of career fields, mined-out the CSOs space to the border of the upper level of groundwater construction waste similar in composition to natural minerals with different particle size fractions, in layers with subsequent compaction of each layer, laying drainage layer construction waste, of a thickness of not less than 0.6 meter and a particle size fractions of 150-200 mm, according to izabranu on the remaining free slopes career, after his bookmarks construction waste, produce terracing with bulldozer will first produce a breakdown of the plot and PROPARCO furrows marking the boundaries of the future terraces, paths and driveways, then bulldozer form the fabric of every terraces with opposite transverse inclination of up to two degrees, and the width of the terraces should not be less than seven meters, then for each terrace, starting with the bottom tier of the terraces around the perimeter of the quarry, arrange the retaining wall of the plates or stone and bind them with cement mortar and lay the drainage system, and on the terraces arrange a place for burial of the dead, the distance from the groundwater table to the burial should be at least 2.5 meters, and to ground cloth terraces of not less than 1.5 meters, in addition, walkways, driveways and the space available in the career center spread of natural or artificial stone.

Introduction this technical solution reduces the cost of return is positive works through the use of construction waste, the resulting reconstruction, demolition and repair of buildings and structures, as well as eliminating the need for extraction of large volumes of soil to create a fertile layer, and terracing of slopes career allows you to reap the economic benefits from restoration of disturbed land without considerable cost. Given that the generated construction waste disposed to landfill disposal of household and industrial waste, the implementation of the present invention will improve the ecological situation.

The drawing shows the circuit implementation of this method.

The method is as follows.

First on the area of disturbed land perform planning work. The mean absolute elevation (ground level) shall be established with consideration of the feasibility study. The layout of the site comply with planned giving the surface a slight bias towards the General lowering of the earth's surface. Then proceed to the mined-out pit 1, stacking layers of construction waste is similar in composition to natural minerals with different particle size fractions. Each stacked layer compacted by the method of compacting sealing machines and mechanisms. The stacking of layers to produce the upper boundary of the groundwater level 2. Then stack the draining layer 3 of school is June or gravel with a thickness of not less than 0.6 meter and particle size fractions 150-200 mm. Condense it.

And proceed to the construction of terraces 4. After laying out the plot and propasti furrows marking the boundaries of the future terraces, walkways and paths, driveways, form the canvas terraces. The construction of terraces 4 given width, not less than seven meters with a cross slope of up to two degrees is produced by using the universal bulldozer. To which the blade is installed in its working position, pushing forward the right (sermon) side of the blade. For formation of company name to be cut angle right Shoe pusher bulldozer privertyvajut spherical head down, securing it in position, so that the knife blade gets the angle in the vertical profile. Then the bulldozer, selecting a relatively flat place to start, goes to the top of the right-of-way land under the terrace, and performing a reciprocating motion on a small stretch of road along the planned terraces, cuts the ground before the formation of the horizontal platform. Cut the ground weakly hurts from shoveling, so a slight turn of the bulldozer have to move it to the left (down the slope), pouring under the left caterpillar and thus replenish the bulk part of the terrace 4. Having finished the work in this period (length of 10-15 meters) bulldozer moves forward to a new area and so on until the end of the Ter is the 4 aces. Then the cycle is repeated with the next terrace. Then, starting from the bottom tier of the terraces around the perimeter of the quarry arrange the retaining wall 5 to strengthen the terraces 4. Retaining wall 5 to prevent the erosion of soil. For the construction of retaining walls 5 used plates and stone, and connect them with concrete mortar. To prevent stagnant waterlogging of the soil laid drainage system (the drawing is not marked). On the terraces 4 arrange places for burial of the dead, the distance (a) from the groundwater level prior to disposal (6) should be at least 2.5 meters, and the distance (b) from the landfill to ground cloth terraces not more than 1.5 meters. Walkways, driveways and free space 7 in the career center 1 post natural or artificial stone.
