Gypsum Quarrying In Novomoskovsk

Posted on July 23, 2011 by kulichik

Have you ever thought that a huge mine the size of which exceeds the area of the Moscow subway system can be located right under your feet? Such a mine, which is the largest gypsum minefield in Europe, is situated in the city of Novomoskovsk in the Tula region.

Size of its minefields and chambers just boggles the mind. Gypsum deposit was discovered in Novomoskovsk in 1929.

A mine can be entered through the cage that seems rather undistinguished.
