Abstract

This is paper deals with the history of underground mining and with quantities of mined hard coal, minewater and methane in the Czech part of the Upper Silesian Coal Basin between 1782 and 2000. The effect of the closureof mines on selected part of the coal fi eld with respect to surface streams and landscape, as well as new activitiesconnected with potential utilisation of coal bed methane and methane trapped in gobs of closed mines is examined.  is paper is a presentation of selected results from project No S3086005: “Eff ect of winding-up of underground mining on processes in lithosphere and on environment�? which is financed within frame of Program of Aimed Research and Development of Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
