Ledoux coal mine

The only remains of the Ledoux coal mine

From 1905 to 1988, coal was extracted from the underground in the Charles Ledoux coal mine in Condé-sur-l'Escaut in France.

The miners dived up to 820 meters underground. At the mine's peak, 2,700 miners worked there.

After its closure in 1988, all buildings, including a second shaft, were demolished in the early 1990s. One steel headframe was preserved.
