The article describes the component composition of the soil cover in the areas of mining granite material near Kuznechnoe, Leningrad region. Nonsoils formations take about 50 per cent of the study area. There are natural and varying degrees disturbed soils in this area around excavations of the quarry. Soils with Novic qualifiers are formed along the access roads to the quarry. There are stratified natural soils are diagnosed around the quarry in the direction of the rose diagram. Lithic Leptosol are formed at the crushed granite storage site. The degree of transformation of the component composition of the soil cover depends on anthropogenic activity in the territory adjacent to granite quarry has been defined. The article outlines the characteristics of the altered structure of the soil cover.
