    I visited here solo on my 6 day exploring/lead checking/mooching session before I picked my girlfriend up and headed for the Netherlands.

    I'd been here early last year but camera battery issues prevented me getting any pictures. Fortunately the access was still there but still a bastard to find. I somehow managed to miss the Usine, both times, which is pretty annoying, however I'm not actually sure it's still there. Anyway...



    More history and info here.

    Solo underground exploring is not the best idea so I was glad to bump into 2 French/Luxembourg explorers down there.

    Didn't know Soetrich was open, it had just been backfilled last time I looked, ages ago. Looks fairly decent. Did you try any others in the Thionville sector?

    It's been open at least 18 months now but I've not seen anything anywhere though. I didn't do anything else this time, I just wanted to get some pictures from here in case it got sealed again. But the others I have done in the Thionville Sector are Molvange and Billig. Both reports are on here.
