Abstract (in english)
   The Rozna mine is the last active uranium mine in Europe. When the mine is closed and flooded the original groundwater circulation will be restored. The goal of thermometry was to identify the ground water effluent positions at possible preferential drainage areas and to characterize potentially endangered parts of the mining district and its surroundings. Measured values show that the aquifer is strongly non-homogenous. The majority of groundwater inflows to streams were identified in the environment of amphibolite and brittle rocks such as migmatite, orthogneiss and granite and in the vicinity of structural features, particularly Diagonal faults in the direction of 55 to 70.
