The article reports the results obtained in the trial of elements of the monitoring system for potentially hazardous areas at Korobkovo deposit of the Kursk Magnetic Anomaly. The system is based on the seismic and deformation measurements aimed to estimate and control shear stiffness of potentially hazardous faults. The fault shear stiffness is estimated through the analysis of parameters of seismic waves in the vicinity of a fault. The sources of seismic signals in the trial were explosions carried out at the neighbor surface and underground mines.
