Method for biological recultivation of mine dumps

FIELD: mining.

SUBSTANCE: sowing of herbs and hard-shrub species is carried out in indents of uneven surface of mine dumps. Simultaneously with that Nitraria sibirika is sown into grooves cut on the tops of process crests of dumps.

EFFECT: reduced time for complete design coverage of anthropogenically damaged lands with plants.

 

The invention relates to the mining industry, in particular for biological reclamation of mining dumps surface mining of minerals, mainly in the arid steppe areas of Central Siberia. Existing technologies disturbed land reclamation, mining, current conditions do not meet temporary, economic and environmental standards and the requirements of the return of the lands in environmentally friendly economic turnover.

Closest to the invention is the focal method of reclamation of mining dumps EN 2343286 AS 41/32, providing for the planting of grass and trees and shrubs in the hollows on unaligned surface rock dumps, resulting in dumping of spoil.

But this method does not create conditions for simultaneous full projective cover the surface of the dumps, as the obliteration of slopes and crests begins after the development of the vegetation technological valleys, shaded slopes and crests and improve their thermal and moisture regimes.

The aim of the invention is the reduction of time full projective cover unaligned surface mining ovals with biological reclamation. The objective is achieved by sowing drazhzhirovannyh seeds nitraria sibirica in furrows on the crests of dumps using at icalneu ability plants, reinforced biologics, to grow in dry, saline, marginal soils, consisting of overburden and fasten them with their taking root shoots, giving a significant annual increase in biological mass.

Almost the way biological recultivation of mining dumps as follows. When forming dumps on technological ridges cut into longitudinal grooves in which the process of cooling and precipitation ovals showered layer destroyed and oxidized rocks. Sowing drazhzhirovannyh seeds nitraria Siberian produce tape method in the grooves on the top of the ridge simultaneously with the seeding in the process of depression. Within two growing seasons, the plant covers the top of the crest and tighten the upper part of its slopes become rooted shoots.

The study of the biology of this plant and experiments given the opportunity to formulate a way to use the nitraria sibirica in as efficient shrub phytomelioration anthropogenic disturbed lands and to create technology of its cultivation for different geobotanical conditions.

The use of the proposed method biological recultivation of mining dumps in enterprises LLC "SUEK-Khakasia" reduced by 2 years full time projective cover to grow what elnett anthropogenic disturbed areas.

The way biological recultivation of mining dumps, including planting of grasses and trees and shrubs in the hollows unaligned surface rock dumps, characterized in that in the process of formation of heaps on the tops of technological ridges are cut grooves, in which simultaneously with the sowing in technological depressions planted the seeds of nitraria Siberian (Nitraria sibirica).
