About: Abandoned Coal Mining Factory in France - We Found Minecarts | BROS OF DECAY - URBEX
Another great find. It is strangely peaceful it seems. Love you guys.
They use acids to extract gold and silver out of the ore. DONT SMELL ANYTHING IN A MINE!
Not enough flat surfaces to spray paint on.
I believe the big building was the processing plant. Some of those cars probably contain slate or coke (which coal that contains impurities. I live in the US in southern West Virginia where there are coal mines.
Please guys be very careful .. i am trying to go back years ago to try to think about the workers there .. at one time it would of been very noisy and busy .. please can you tell me what the piano music is its beautiful .. Leslie you are such a sweetheart and appreciate lots of places and things .. wow you are a credit to your parents xx
That was very interesting. Thank you. I love exploring with you guys.
WARE DO YOU LIVE
DO A VIDOW OF ALL THE MINECARTS PLISCE
This is The former Houilleres de Bassin du Lorraine (HBL) Siege de Wendel at Petite-Rosselle.
Which Post Nationalization in 1946 passed to HBL Groupe de Petite-Roselle.
It had 3 shafts (1,2 & 3)
The pit at peak production had a capacity of about 10,000 tonnes per day.
Originally opened by the de Wendel family to provide Coking Coals for their Ironworks/Steelworks.
Mining comenced as early as 1856
But it was not until the mid 1870's that the Colliery was finished
Also on the site was the two Puits Vuillemin (1 & 2) which dated from the 1860's-1880's
Wendel no 1 dated from 1865
Wendel no 2 dated originally from 1856 and was completed by 1871.
In the late 1930's the de Wendel Company proposed a new deep shaft Wendel no 3 but it was not completed until after WW II (1953)
Closure came between 1989 and 1991 (Pumping and Ventilation continued up to 1998)
It was then designated the the site would become the Museum of The Lorraine Coalfield a role it still fulfills The site is not technically abandonned and it is hoped to prevent further decay in the Screens and the coal handling plant.
The last French Colliery on the Coalfield (and the last Deep mine in France) Houve II at Cruetzwald closed in 2004.
With the last Colliery on the German sector Grube Duhamel (Bergwerk Saar) at ENSDORF near Saarlouis closing in 2012.
Bergwerk Saar Nordschact was by 1997 1,751m deep! Making it the deepest colliery shaft ever sunk.
Note that the Lorraine and Saar coalfields are in fact the same coal basin.
your videography is excellent. I assume you edit and cut a lot for the final product, it must be a lot of work. Thank you, and you absolutely capture the feel of these places, none of your shots are repetitive, they are all captivating. Good work again!
It's so amazing to see what you find no graffiti guys are great I love seeing these places thank u
I'm confused... So many in comments are saying "coal mine" I thought you said it was a "gold mine" loved the video! Thank you!
Companies who own a building and shut it down should either be forced to take it down if it is not going to be used & allow nature to reclaim it or they should allow the public to fundraise and keep it maintained as a museum. They shouldn't just be abandoned. Its ruining the planet. Give the place a purpose or remove it. This place would be a cool museum. Great vid
Just lovely !! Thank you brosofdecay :))
yo you should do a collaboration with exploring with Josh
Wow, what an amazing place! When did you guys visit it? I really wanna go there!
Don't breathe it dangerous. Beautiful top view. Oh my gosh be careful.
They steal copper in the US also. So sad.
