The MRPP : a powerful operational regulatory tool to prevent and manage post-mining risks

Abstract : Even if most French mining sites are definitively closed, potential risks remain above the abandoned exploitations. In addition to surface instability, some mining sites may be affected by dangerous gas emissions or by flooding events or environmental degradations. Those kinds of disorders strongly influence the land use management of the concerned areas. In order to post and manage properly those risks, French State has developed a powerful operational regulatory tool : the MRPP (Mining Risk Prevention Plan). MRPP aims to identify the most sensitive areas subject to 'post mining hazards' and to define technical and regulation rules able to manage the principles of the future urbanism development on surface. The present paper proposes a methodological description of MRPP in order to explain the nature and objectives of the procedure.
