Revelation of nature and mechanisms of seismicity induced by technogenic impact is one of the actual problems of present-day seismology which is very important in providing safety for many large industrial agglomerations. Kizel coal mine region is an example of such agglomeration in the West Urals. It is situated within the Dobryansko-Kizel seismoactive zone (Fig.1) which has been found to be one of the most hazardous regions of the West Urals as far as natural and technogenic seismicity goes.
