Introduction. Sufficiently widespread expansion of disturbed lands in mining regions, particularly within the borders of residential areas, necessitates restoration measures, the direction and the content of which is determined first of all by the results of engineering and geological investigations. Research aim is to reveal the features of engineering and environmental studies for disturbed lands restoration based on the previous work performed at the territories ofmining entities and residential areas including open pits and industrial waste sites. The research also aims to show the features of selecting grounds for these purposes and using secondary resources. Methodology. In order to study and generalize the results of the disturbed areas engineering and environmental research, apart from on-site and analytical research, the authors applied theoretical research methods including the analysis and synthesis both own materials and various information sources. Results. The article considered differences and common features of disturbed lands engineering and environmental research within the borders of the residential areas by the example of Ekaterinburg city and mining territories of Asbest industrial hub. It has been determined that the effect on the ecological state ofdisturbed territories is ofa cyclic character. The features ofusing secondary resourcesfor disturbed land restoration within the limits of "circular economy" is a strategy of sustainable development. The use of the man-made mineral formation is recommended, which can promote to further improvement of ecological situation of mining regions.
