Abstract

Mineral resources are a non-renewable treasure, and mining is an activity without which human life is unthinkable. This brings on a number of negative environmental problems when opening or expanding an existing exploitation field, so it is necessary to provide an estimate of the environmental impact by making an environmental impact study. Quarry “Plaškarica” is an existing quarry in the township of Bosiljevo in the county of Karlovac. The study of plant life in the quarry determined 52 plant species. The study found two invasive species ragweed (Ambrosia artemisiifolia) and acacia (Robinia pseudacacia). There are two areas of ecological networks in the vicinity of the quarry: Đutno cave and Kupa. The predominant habitat type is mixed oak-hornbeam forests and pure hornbeam forests which is on the endangered and rare habitat types list and requires the implementation of conservation methods. In the area was found nine of wildlife and two near threatened species. Since this is a relatively small area of operations (about 10 ha) it is considered that this procedure will not significantly endanger or interfere with the relationship of the flora and fauna in the immediate or wider environment of the quarry.
