Wow, way cool...
Though I didn't realise there are still resources to be mined in Europe after all these centuries.
(Forgive an ignorant American).

That UV shot reminds me of the old-time photos of "the Black Country" in England.

Thanks all for commenting

@ Bob: Even after all centuries of mining, mining business still is quite active, many old resources are newly investigated with modern methods. The problem here is more, that the country is that populated. For these brown coal pits e.g. several villages were moved and, off course, the people living there do not like to give up sites (with churches and castles), were all their anchesters grew up and were even many traces from the romans and even further back can and are found in the ground.
