An already recultivated, burnt coal-mining dump. Hypergenic, fumarolic (so-called para- or pseudofumarolic) (mainly) and high-temperature mineral associations were observed. Some "minerals" may be of "technogenic" origin. The researches of "Skalny" dump were performed in connection with Mag. Thesis (unpublished) on Institute of Geochemistry, Mineralogy and Petrology, Faculty of Geology, Warsaw University, Poland.
