Results of the mineralogical, pedological, hydrological, hydrogeological, geochemical and microbiochemical investigation will enable prepare objective imagine about the spatial distribution of heavy metals and toxic elements, about the kinetics and direction of their migration. For a consideration of the results will be compared the situation at Ľubietová with that at Špania Dolina and Staré Hory deposits. The optimal solutions of balanced sanitation (remediation) of investigated mining territory: technogenous sediments of the dump-fields, soil, water and plants of contaminated country will be presented as a result of the reseach. The recommended remediation will be realised with respect to the typical features of mining territory in such a way to consider the environmental, mining-historical and economic aspects. Also 1 PhD-students is affiliated to the research-team.
