Electricity: The New Ecological Systems at the Mines at This Moment

Recorded and written by Radoje Jankovic, Professional Technical Writer and Documentary.

New Ecological Systems at the Mines at This Moment

The Electricity Production Starting in the Surface Opening Open Pit Mines.

Today, I took several photos of the beginnings of the formation of new ecological systems in surface mines on “land” forms of complex geological composition. I am not sure whether geologists have still defined these new geological soils that are formed during and after the mass surface exploitation of lignite coal. I have previously taken many photographs of these areas successively from the beginning to the near end of the formation of stable ecosystems with all the characteristics.

This is a picture of the first excavation of tailings at the surface mine field “D” from 1961.
Look at those tame landscapes as they looked 60 years ago and today none of this exists, desert landscapes, pampas, steppes, prairies up to -60 m below normal altitude, all in one part of the far east of Rudovac and Prkosava to the center of Vreoce and from Junkovac, Mirosaljac and Arapovac from the north to the center of Medoševac, Zeoke and Baroševac in the south.
The tailings were transported by wagon trains pulled by steam locomotives.
Today don’t existing anything of these and more, more…

Ovo je slika prvog otkopavanja jalovine na površinskom kopu polje “D” iz 1961.
Pogledajte te pitome predele kako su izgledali pre 60 godina a danas ničega od ovog nema, pustinjski predeli, pampasi, stepe, prerije do -60 m ispod normalne nadmorske visine i to sve u jednom delu og krajnjeg istoka Rudovaca i Prkosave do centra Vreoca i od Junkovca, Mirosaljaca i Arapovca sa severa do centra Medoševca, Zeoka i Baroševca na jugu.
Jalovina se odvozila kompozicijama vagona koje su vukle lokomotive parnjače.

It is interesting that plant formations first appear as solitary individuals of resistant or adaptable newly formed geological soil formations that are very fertile. It gradually expands and multiplies. Also, after many years of monitoring, I noticed that after a few years, almost the entire surface is covered with plants of various species. After ten years, they are becoming thicker and thicker and are starting to become more and more impassable.

At the same time, many new surface watercourses with various branches are formed…. See also the following article.

Are any of the ecologists and environmental experts, not only from Lazarevac, which has a lot, but also from Serbia, from the faculties that there are many, as well as from the institutes that deal with this issue? And not only here in “Kolubara”, but also in other coal basins in Serbia.

I know that many have obtained master’s and doctoral degrees and “sound” masters and doctors of science by writing various environmental studies at all institutions because they were well paid by RB “Kolubara”. Many of them were “adaptable”, you know how and to whom. They were paid with a hat and a fist. Millions and millions of euros have been given for various environmental projects, studies and as well as for the alleged protection of the environment in our municipality after the surface exploitation of coal.

Danas sam snimio i više fotografija početaka formiranja novih ekoloških sistema na površinskim kopovima na “zemljišnim”formama kompleksnog geološkog sastava. Nisam siguran da li su geolozi još uvek definisali ova nova geološka tla koja nastaju u toku i posle masovne površinske eksploatacije uglja lignita. I ranije sam snimao mnogo fotografija ovih prostora sukcesivno od početka do skorog kraja formiranja stabilnih ekosistema sa svim karakteristikama.

Interesantno je da se prvo pojavljuju biljne formacije kao usamljene jedinke i to otporinih ili prilagodljivim novonastalim geološkim formacijama tla. Postepeno se šire i množe. Takođe sam dugogodišnjim praćenjem uočio da se već posle nekoliko godina skoro cele površine pokrivene biljkama raznih vrsta. Posle desetinu godina već postaju sve gušće i gušće te počinju biti sve neprohodnije. Istovremeno se formiraju mnoštva novih površinskih vodotoka sa najrazličitijim grananjima…

  1. Exactly what I was looking for, thankyou for posting.

  2. Hi , I do believe this is an excellent blog. I stumbled upon it on Yahoo , i will come back once again. Money and freedom is the best way to change, may you be rich and help other people.
