After potash mining ceased in the Bleicherode and Sollstedt mining fields, huge mining cavities remained. This created significant risks to public safety, which can be counteracted or eliminated by adding rock backfill. This proof of long-term safety is established and documented by authorities, research institutes and their partners.
