1. INTRODUCTION Acording to the shown measuring points the following parameters are. weekly monitoring: pH, temperature
The flotation tailings ,,Veliki Krivelj’’is localized in eastern Serbia in the vicinity of the town (water and air), conductivity, soluble oxygen. Monthly monitoring: pH, temperature (water and air),
conductivity, soluble oxygen, flow, suspended particles, sulphate ion and ions of toxic elements - copper,
of Bor, and is an integral part of RTB Bor (Figure 1). As part of the production process of
lead, zinc, cadmium, nickel, chromium, selenium and arsenic.
copper concentrate production, it is located south of the Veliki Krivelj open pit and east of the
Veliki Krivelj flotation. 3.2. Air Quality Monitoring Program
The air quality monitoring program includes daily temperature measurement of air temperature, humidity,
precipitation, atmospheric pressure, wind speed. The monitoring of air quality (precipitant matter) should be
carried out at 9 measuring points: Above the Saraka Landfill, Above the Field 2 of the Veliki Krivelj
flotation tailing, Above Dam 3 (the village of Oštrelj), Below Dam 3 (Monastery), MZ Sloga and the Village
of Slatina. By forming a new zero field, it is necessary to place measuring points north to the village of
Krivelj, west to the old open pit Bor, and east of the location.


In the area of the flotation pit Veliki Krivelj, observation was performed in the previous period. The aim of
these observations is to monitor the shifts and deformations of all objects in this location. Auscultation was
performed at locations: Field 1 and Field ad at dams: 1A, 2A i 3Aof flotation tailing.
Auscultation of flotation tailing Veliki Krivelj
The observation of the Veliki Krivelj flotation tailing would include the following:

Flotation tailing Veliki Krivelj is constrated of two fields; field 1 which is limited by upstream dam 1A and
river bed [1]. Downstream of the tailing is the village Oštrelj, and the upstream belt conveyor downstream dam 2A and field 2 which is limited by upstream dam 2A and downstream dam 3A.

north of tailings is the open pit Veliki Krivelj [2]. The spatial position of the flotation tailing
with the associated main facilities is shown in Figure 2. Sandy dam 2A limits Field 1 from the downstream side towards inactive Field 2.
Dam 3A
Dam 3 is the final downstream dam, which limits the field 2 from the downstream side towards the village
of Oštrelj. This dam is, in large part, eroded, especially its crown, so its height is much below 345 m.
Zero field
Auscultation would include a newly formed zero field and a zero dam located upstream of field 1.

Flotation tailings pose a perilous threat to ecological environmental factors, whether they are in function, or
after the end of deferred storage and filling of flotation tailingʼs space. For that reason, the flotation tailing
area should be used completely so that no new surfaces can be taken and polluted by the new streams of the

The complete collector is divided into stations which have been rehabilitated depending on the
rehabilitation phase: Pouring stable part of the collector from the stationary 0 + 0.00 to the
stationary 0 + 200, the rehabilitated part of the collector from the station 0 + 200 to the station

3.1.Water Quality Monitoring Program
The water quality monitoring program should include weekly and monthly monitoring of
underground and surface waters. The monitoring of the surface water quality would include 8
measuring points: the Sarka river stream (MM * -1), the Kriveljska river pre-cast into the
Saraka stream (MM-2), the Kriveljska river after the flow into the Saraka stream (MM-3)
under the dam 1 (before entering the collector) (MM-4), the Krivelj’s River under the dam 3
of the flotation tailing Veliki Krivelj (MM-5), Borska reka prior to joining with Krivelj’s River
(MM-6), Krivelj’s River before flows into Bor’s River (MM-7), water after the merger of
Bor’s and Krivelj’s rivers and underground waters (MM-8).
In order to monitor the quality of underground waters that are in the immediate vicinity of the
watercourse of the Krivelj’s River, three piazzometers were placed in three different locations,
several kilometers apart. Monitor these waters are on a monthly basis.
