Back from the mining area Sonnenschein 706 !


At the Ost colliery on 27.01.2003 !

As you can see, this time we visited a longwall mining area - it was the mining area 706 in the Sonnenschein (English: "sunshine") seam on the Ost colliery's seventh level in a depth of -1120 metres. In this mining area a steel plow is used to extract the hard coal.
