The intensive development of the coal mining industry has led to an increase in a number of environmental problems that have turned the Donbass region into a depressed one. The coal seam is mined at depth. As a result, in many places, groundwater flows into the formed openings, which leads to the disappearance of water from wells and boreholes, dehydration of the upper soil layers and even the disappearance of a number of natural lakes and rivers, and the impossibility of irrigation in agriculture. The second side of the problem is the appearance of the so-called mine dumps or slagheaps during the operation of any mine. These human-made conical pyramids have become a serious environmental hazard. The solution to these problems is possible through the creation of a free economic zone and the introduction of innovative approaches to solving a set of problems.
