Pyramiden: Old mine 3 - Panorama

360° panorama

The upper one of three old, small mine shafts in this area on the lower slope of the Pyramiden mountain. Also here: Mine 3 is not a historical term, I just use it here to make it easier to keep the overview.

The highest one of 3 old coal mines near Pyramiden.

Also here, information is lacking regarding when and how long this mine shaft was in use or how much coal was produced here.

Old coal mine (3): view into the mine shaft.

An important warning: entering old coal mines is highly dangerous. Structures and mine shaft roofs may collapse at any time, and gas may migrate from the surrounding rocks and coal into the mine shaft. You can not see or smell it and once you feel it, it is too late. Entering a coal mine that is not under control and professionally ventilated is life dangerous, so never ever go into an old coal mine!
