DIAMO, state enterprise, SUL branch
DIAMO, state enterprise, branch Správa uranových ložisek, administers the liquidated mining and processing capacities connected with uranium and other ore deposits in Bohemia, except for the North Bohemia and East Bohemia regions, including 19 individual areas of uranium and other ore mines with more than five thousand known environmental burdens.
Works on elimination of burdens left after uranium ore mining and processing have recently continued in harmony with the updated attenuation projects for the individual regions as permitted by the allocated state budget funds.
Another significant activity of the branch is cleaning of mine waters in the Příbram region by the newly built large-capacity mine water treatment plant on the premises of the former Colliery 19. With regard to the possible extreme water flows into the deposit, the new WTP capacity was extended by reconstruction of an older mine water treatment plant No. 1 at Bytíz.
In the context of elimination of consequences of the activity of the chemical treatment plant MAPE Mydlovary, rehabilitation of sludge fields K I - 4, K III, K IV/D is performed. The remediation and recultivation of the chemical treatment plant and the sludge field K IV/D by DIAMO was subsidised from the Operational Programme Environment of the Czech Republic, co-financed from EU funds.
Elimination of consequences of mining activity and liquidation of emergency conditions is focused predominantly on the localities of Horní Slavkov, Jáchymov and Příbram.
The continually performed activities include the mining and technological monitoring of abandoned mines and monitoring of selected components of the environment in all problem areas.
