Business Areas

The main business of GSES GmbH is backfilling mine workings with suitably prepared, mineral industrial wastes. Various backfilling methods are used for the different types of waste.

The excellent geological and hydrogeological conditions in the Glückauf Mine enabled a class IV underground disposal facility to be created, which has been in operation since 2006.

Another field of business is stacking uncontaminated mineral wastes on the mine tailings dump. The dump is being covered with these waste materials to stabilize it hydrologically, and prepare it for recultivation.

The mining of rock salt is the last major field of business which is currently being expanded.
