Comprehensive stabilisation measures are being carried out in the Asse II mine on account of the rock-mechanical conditions and as a precaution against an enhanced inflow of saline solutions, which it would no longer be possible to control in case of emergency. With these measures the BfS wants to achieve that
- the deformations of the mine openings reduce and
- thus the probability of an increase in inflowing solutions reduces.
The residual stability of the Asse mine can currently be prognosticated on a scientifically reliable basis until the year 2020.
Stabilisation measures are to reduce the risk that it will no longer be possible to decommission the Asse mine in an orderly manner. Among the stabilisation measures are the so-called filling of roof clefts as well as additional measures involving the backfilling of no longer needed cavities (blind shafts, galleries etc.) in the mine with concrete.
