History:
The history of this coal mine started all the way back in the beginning of the 1900s. At the time the West-Germany truly started to industrialize. What powered this rapid industry was for the majority coal. This caused the creation of many new coal mines. During the years the mine grew gradually from a small scale mine into a truly massive operation. In the 60s the mine contained its own coal processing plant and its own power plant. In the 80s the deep coal mining industry started to decrease in the this area, in the end of the century the mine had to close its doors. After the closure the majority of the mine was demolished, Except for the shafts, the hoisting buildings and the machine house.
