Abstract
Health of a nation is a sensitive barometer of the environmental situation, especially in the North, where vulnerable nature cannot resist intensive industrial development. The geographical location and severe climatic conditions of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) significantly sharpen any negative impact of industrial activity on the state of the environment. The impact of ecological factors on the health of population has been studied in the case of a diamond province (Vilyuy region), where a complex of chemical pollutants from diamond mining, products of wood decay in places of flooding of the water reservoir for the Vilyuisk power station, highly mineralised underground waters and consequences of underground explosions have caused a substantial negative effect on the environment and people. Studies on the health of the population in the Vilyuy region has shown that sickness and morbidity rates of viral hepatitis, tuberculosis, pathologies during pregnancy and other diseases are higher in comparison to rates in the Republic as a whole, a feature which has been attributed to environmental degradation in the area.

Abstract
The purpose of this study is to determine the pattern of morbidity and micro-elemental status among the adult population of Sakha Republic living in the mining region of Udachny with its well-developed diamond extraction industry in comparison with rural habitants living in the Tit-Ary region without mining pollution. The presented data demonstrate that ecological factors together with other factors influence the micro-elemental status and the pattern of morbidity of the population.

Abstract
Complex examination including the Mantoux test with 2 TU of PPD-L and tween-80 and fluorography was applied to 2537 underground miners aged 20 to 60 years. Negative, doubtful and positive tuberculin reactions were stated in 3.1 +/- 0.3, 3.7 +/- 0.4 and 93.2 +/- 0.5 per cent of the miners, respectively, including 1.4 +/- 0.2 per cent of the miners with hyperergic reactions. Relationship was found between the tuberculin sensitivity and occupational factors, as well as characteristics of the residual lesions of sustained pulmonary tuberculosis.

Abstract
In the 10-year period 1983 to 1992 a total of 169 occupational accidents occurred in the Barentsburg (Russia) colliery. The corresponding figures for the Longyearbyen (Norway) mines are 524. Of these, fatal accidents were 8 in Barentsburg and 5 in Longyearbyen. The curve representing the number of casualties in Longyearbyen showed a marked decline from 1985 onwards, whereas the Barentsburg figures, although much lower at the outset, increased during the last 4 years.
