An increase of the intensity of landslide processes and threats, which they cause, resulted
in growth of interest in rock slides. Łódź district is located in the area, where the frequency of
slide processes caused by natural factors is the lowest in Poland. It is due to lack of natural
long slopes of big inclinations. However, the geological structure of some areas potentially
favours landslides formation, especially there, where great slopes are created by humans
(Fig. 1, 2, Photos 2, 3, 4).
There are many mineral resources mines in Łódź district, hence the probability of steep
escarpments and hillsides formation creation increase the chance of landslides danger. However,
the type of extracted ores, with a few exceptions, do not favour landslides formation. If they
are formed there are of small sizes. One, but a very important exception is KWB "Bełchatów"
opencast excavation and a new adjacent, similar "Szczerców" opencast. Because of particular
depth of the flIst excavation and its very complicated geological structure, landslides processes
are here frequent and intensive. The sizes of formed landslips are comparative with the greatest
natural landslides in Poland (Tab. 1, Fig. 4, Photos 3, 4). They are a great threat for machines
and workers of mining factory. The analysis of current landslide processes, establishing the
reasons of their formation and their dynamics, as well as continuous monitoring of the zones
endangered by these phenomena are basic for controlling landslide processes and limiting danger.
