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!
