about

...Renamed Miedzianka, it became a site of a secret Red Army mining operation, as Soviet experts expected to develop a uranium mine there. From 1949 to the 1950s about 600 tons of uranium were sent from Miedzianka to the USSR. Extensive and wanton mining caused much damage to the town, and when the uranium deposits proved to be insufficient for continued exploitation, the local economy collapsed amid the government's attempts to hide the uranium excavation. The mine was publicly labelled as a "paper factory"; Polish and Soviet troops and secret police guarded the mine, and the miners who could not keep the secret were executed.

As these pits are now abandoned, fragile and sometimes almost dead sounds evoke the ghostly remnants of activity in four different shafts.
