Stop Mining

The lower levels of the coal mine "korkinsky" (Chelyabinsk region) just nine months after the cessation of production at the quarry was filled with water.

Confirmation of these facts were members of the Union of journalists of the Chelyabinsk region, flown on the "maize" over a huge hole, located a few dozen kilometers from Chelyabinsk and in the vicinity of Roza and Korkino.

The Union of journalists of the region flew over the Korkinsky cut. And what do we see?
For 9 months after retiring from the incision Chelyabinsk coal company, the lower horizons are filled with water, underground rivers formed a lake. The open pit predominantly green - is samoregulyatsiya soils. There is no fire.
Question: what poison is all waste Tominsky concentrator?

"Nine months after leaving the mine Chelyabinsk coal company lower horizons are filled with water, an underground river had formed a lake," - said on his page in the social network of Vlad Pisanov.

Fires they could not see, although the comments under the pictures close the user was able to see the smoke on one of the sides. But he immediately said: "This is the cloud. Top shot".

Reviewer saw that almost all the pit edges are green and concluded that "there is samoregulyatsiya soils." "What poison is all waste Tominskoe enrichment plant?", - asks Vlad Pisanov.

But experts who know close situation, there is not only this question but also serious concerns about the safety of the inhabitants of Korkino and cut "korkinsky".

As told to the Agency "Ural-press-inform" close acquaintance with the korkinsky cut candidate of technical Sciences, member of International Academy of ecology and life safety, Eduard Milman, when collected at the bottom of the quarry the water rises to a certain level (about 5-10 meters), it will crawl the open pit, close to which there are residential houses and administrative buildings. "Maybe this will happen in a year, and maybe in 5-10 years. But they will crawl. And everything will collapse," warns the specialist.

Edward Millman explained that the rock which now lies under and over the coal seams will begin to hydrate. The water will penetrate inside. But this breed has a moisture content reaches 15-20%. And take some time when it comes to the critical moment, a stable system will break down and begin destruction or slipping of the sides of the cut. "Then break out a disaster," warns Edward Millman.

Edward Millman believes that the cut can crawl from one side to the lake Bektas, and on the other the airfield Kalachevo, consuming on the surface of the structure (residential and garden houses, garages, industrial buildings).

Almost the same opinion Elena Stroganova: "Breed's career is when water gets on Board they will collect water and become plastic... If it happens - rose with rapid speed leaving the bat (slides). Now she goes a few centimeters per year."

In addition, informed Eduard Milman told the correspondent of the Agency "Ural-press-inform" that the area of the section flows an underground river (150 meters from the surface), interruption of the career. She is beautiful, with waterfalls pouring over the sides, but it carries a real threat.

When the coal mine "korkinsky" were mining it on a daily basis specialists of the pumped water from the quarry bottom. After leaving Chelyabinsk coal company none of these works does.

The Eduard Milman recalls that around the incision is seven closed and water-filled pits, as well as an underground lake – a strategic reserve of drinking water. And when the cut start bulking waste Tominsk GOK, contaminated water will go into production in former mines and poison the strategic water reserves, said the scientist.

Eduard Milman also commented on the possible impact on the section held in region of earthquakes. "Seismic processes can cause landslides on the sides of the incision. But it is necessary to study" - with carefully commented the expert. In his opinion, a greater concern should cause the fate of the dam, which will appear on Tamanskom GOK.

Recall that a member of the Council for development of civil society and human rights under the President of Russia (HRC) Ivan Zasursky called a coal cut "korkinsky" in the Chelyabinsk region branch of hell.
