At the Ost colliery on 10.07.2003 !

This photo was taken after visiting the longwall mining area number 304 in the Sonnenschein (German for "sunshine") seam in a depth of -1120 metres. Because of the fact that the extraction of coal had not begun in that area, the color of the skin in the face was not too dark.
