Summary:
The article represents data on research of water resources of geotechnical systems – pit lakes developed on the Southern Urals territory after pyrite mining. It was shown that pit lakes have similar features with natural lakes such as represented thermocline (oxycline in some cases), profile-differentiation of chemical composition, etc. Oxidation of sulfide ore leads to formation of acidic and weak acidic conditions with pH 2.6-4.3. Water anion and cation compositions fundamentally change in pit lakes in comparison with natural lakes.

Keywords: geotechnical system, pit lake, water chemical composition
