Abstract (in english)
   In the paper seismic events with a source energy high than 100 MJ occurring in the Upper Silesian Coal Basin, Poland, are analysed. The distribution of strong shock epicentres is not uniform in the area and shows the non - random character of seismic phenomena. This distribution is fractel with a fractal dimension equal to 1.17. Lines connecting an epicentre of successive events reveal characteristic directional features. Results of the study suggest that an origin of the strongest seismic events in the Upper Silesian Coal Basin lies in a dynamic processes having a regional extent
