Tagebau (Germany)

These enormous mechanical monsters were used to excavate the lakes that they are nowadays parked next to. The Tagebau bagger (opencast mining) – machines measure up to 100 meters in length and weigh up to 2000 tons. After years of exploiting the surrounding territory they found their peace, functioning as colossal – yet silent – landmarks, commemorating the region’s mining past.

Ardoisière M (Belgium)

Abandoned slate quarry with a depth of approximately 170 meters. In its heydays the quarry produced more than 1 million high quality dark grey slates annually. Rumour has it that the quarry had to close in the 1980s after an accident occurred in one of the 7 underground levels. Luckily none of the workers was present in the mine chamber when this incident took place.
