      Particular attention was paid to geotechnical problems encountered during lignite mining in Polish deposit conditions. Geotechnical protection of safe lignite utilization by its gasification involves many issues such as presence of underground water, predicted land subsidence and deformation, etc. Great importance is attached to surface facilities and buildings safety and to protection of urban areas.
