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 (partly protected), the remains provide an interesting area to explore and to photograph. The area may see Russian mining activities again in the future, but a decision is not expected before 2015.
