The article is devoted to the problem of inconsistency of needs of the modern stage of the life activity of human society and the possibilities of self-restoration of Earth's geospheres. The increase in the technogenic load and the rate of consumption of natural resources leads to a disturbance of the natural balance. On the example of territories of mining of non-metallic materials, it is shown how technogenic transformation of the natural environment provokes extensive negative consequences. As a result of the quarrying of non-metallic raw materials for the construction industry, the relief, microclimate, hydrological and hydrogeological regimes of the territories, the state of ecosystems, and the pollution of the environment are changing. In the vast territories of the deposits themselves and areas adjacent to them, dangerous exogenous geodynamic processes (suffosion, erosion, landslides, screes, etc.) develop. To preserve the natural balance, it is necessary to conduct comprehensive monitoring in the areas of deposits and introduce a system of recultivation measures.
