March 2011 Jos and I have visit this coal mine

Here some info:
Zeche Hugo was a coal mine in Gelsenkirchen in western Germany. The "Gewerkschaft des Steinkohlenbergwerks Hugo" was founded in 1873 and named after the man behind it, Hugo Honigmann. In 1875 the construction of the first shaft was finished and mining could start. By the end of 1909 there were 5 shafts in use. In the last years around 5000 people were employed, mining around 3.5 million tonnes of coal.

In 1997 mining at Zeche Hugo was stopped. Between 97 and 2004 the shafts were filled and most buildings demolished. Today only the administration block and shaft 2 are still standing. Whilst the admin block is open to the elements, shaft 2 has been converted into a small museum and venue.

Apart from the two buildings, only the hill of excavation material reminds of the 127 years of mining. Mine gas from the bottom of the shafts is also pumped and burned locally for power generation.
