The state and prospects of hydrogeological development of hard mineral deposits in the USSR

The present day problems of studying the hydrogeological conditions of mineral deposits undergoing geological prospection have been formulated.

Poorly developed solutions to the problem of the prediction of the chemical composition of the mine water, rock consolidation, degassing of the subsurface brines, water seepage through clays and the impact of mine workings on the hydrogeological environment are reflected.

The necessity for a greater reliability in hydrogeological predictions at the sites of mineral deposits to be achieved through a complex use of various methods of field studies, including stationary regime observations, as well as an application of mathematical simulation is shown.

The results of methodical scientific studies and long term hydrogeological predictions for mining regions with various hydrogeological conditions (development of karst water, confined water complexes, water-bearing layers dipping at angle) are illustrated. The characteristics of the variations in the hydrogeological conditions of these regions are given.
