S.A. des Ardoisières Saint Marton

Built: 1906

Abandoned: 1995

Visited: 2006


Close to the border between Belgium and Luxemburg there is this mine at the Belgium side. An ardoiserie as these mines are called in French is a slate quarry. The 170 meter deep quarry produced more than a million slates a year. While exploring we found an entrance to the underground mine but didn’t find it safe enough to explore. It seems the building isn’t completely abandoned, the offices were locked and you could see there was recent activity there.
