Abstract

The urgency of the safety of the components of the natural environment of Central Kazakhstanis due, firstly, to the long development of solid minerals and, in connection with this, thehuge expenditure of energy and water resources, and secondly, to the use of obsolete miningtechnologies. The complex of works on the extraction of solid minerals leads to a change in theentire range of environmental conditions in the mining areas and adjacent areas, which is due tothe interconnectedness of all natural components among themselves. The processes leading to theradical reorganization of the lithogenic base include works in the mining sector, the beginningof which was laid in the first half of the twentieth century. A prolonged mechanical interventionin the surface subsurface structures of the earth’s crust led to the development of a number ofdangerous geodynamic processes that directly and indirectly degrade the ecological state of theenvironment of the study area.
