« Gro Minière », « Schwaarz Bréck ». The Iron Ore MineToday, this area is used as a resort area by the neighboring population. The trail passes through a complex of calcicolous beech woods, as well as some former open-cast mines. Remnants of ore mining from the past are interesting historical witnesses. (schifflange.lu)A steelworks in Schifflange was founded in 1871 by the Metz family as Usine METZ (Esch-Schifflange), the steelworks became part of ARBED in 1911. In the 1980s the plant was converted to the continuous casting of blooms, then in the 90s an electric furnace installed. In 1994 the company merged with the Belgian company Métallurgique et Minière de Rodange-Athus (MMRA) forming ARES (Aciéries Rodange Esch-Schifflange). In the first decade of the 21st century ownership passed from Arcelor to ArcelorMittal, in 2008 becoming ArcelorMittal Rodange and Schifflange S.A. together with the plant in Rodange. (wikipedia)
