Colesbukta

360°-Panoramas

Coles­buk­ta was a small Rus­si­an sett­le­ment that was used until 1962 to ship coal that was mined in neigh­bou­ring Gru­mant­by­en. Then, the mine was clo­sed, for geo­lo­gi­cal reasons, as they say. A few buil­dings and other remains can still be seen in both sett­le­ments, the remains pro­vi­de an inte­res­t­ing area to explo­re and to pho­to­graph.

Some buil­dings and arte­facts in Coles­buk­ta (and Gru­mant­by­en) are pro­tec­ted becau­se they are older than 1946. It is not allo­wed to camp or to make a fire in the­se are­as, inclu­ding a safe­ty zone of 100 met­res. This includes struc­tures that may be hid­den in the ground.

Around 2010, the Rus­si­an Trust Ark­ti­ku­gol had plans to revi­ve coal mining acti­vi­ties in Coles­buk­ta, but not­hing has come out of it so far.
