Spoil heaps after uranium mining for the third time

This year, we collected data from the last locality of uranium spoil heaps in the Czech Republic, from Horní Slavkov. Compared to the spoil heaps in Jáchymov, there grow less spruce, but more deciduous trees. In comparison with the spoil heaps in Příbram, they overgrow much faster. The spoil heaps already look as integrated parts of the local landscape with an interesting relief, often still copying the style of dumping.
