Abstract (in english)
   Acid mine drainage (AMD) is one of the worst environmental problems associated with mining activity. Both at the beginning and in the middle of the 20th C., the attenuation of mining activity in the Slovak Republic gave rise to the extensive closing of deposits using wet conservation i.e. flooding. The negative results of AMD activity can be observed mainly at those locations where sulphide ores and raw materials containing sulphides were mined. At the deposits in Roznava, Pezinok and Rudnany, the surrounding carbonate system partly buffers the AMD evolution. During the last decade various remediation methods were applied at the Sobov location aimed at reducing the environmental impact of AMD but without marked success. From the point of occurrence and generation of AMD, the deposits at Smolnik represent the classic example. The whole area of deposit is markedly affected by AMD activity. The mine waters have pH 3.
