Keywords: landslide susceptibility | risk | mining | Arieş middle basin | Roşia Montană

The paper assesses landslide susceptibility in the Arieş middle basin, with focus on the RoşiaMontană mining perimeter. The study uses the existing Romanian methodology for landslidesusceptibility mapping. The results illustrate the risk level of landslide occurrence: most of the Arieşbasin is characterized by insignificant and low values of landslide susceptibility, while medium values arefound in the mining perimeters. The Roşia Montană mining perimeter presents disequilibria atmorphodynamic level especially in the area of the mining facilities, enhancing the occurrence oflandslides risk, with significant impacts on the regional safety and security of mining works.
