5 An Abandoned Mine from Ural Mountains

An Abandoned Mine from Ural Mountains

Posted on May 29, 2014 by tim

Mr. Mishainik has visited an abandoned Ural mountain mine and got this photo set and a story: During World War 2 most of Russian mining was moved to Ural. The mining volumes escalated tremendously – resources were in high demand by the army. This is a visit to one such mine, built and mining ore for the needs of the army at that time. Even though production stopped decades ago, the cars are still loaded with ore.

 Logs were mainly used to fortify the mine passages.

But the most important passages were fortified with concrete.

Lots of passages have collapsed.


The cars still are loaded with ore.
