    The training mine Recklinghausen is located under the mountain dump of the Recklinghausen colliery in Recklinghausen-Hochlarmark.The pigeon rock from the two shafts was piled up since the sinking of the first shaft (1869) directly next to shaft II on Wannerstraße. During the Second World War, shelter bunkers were built for the miners and residents of the Triangle settlement. Over time, a dense stock of trees grew on the heap. The heap height makes itself next to the adjacent dump Hoheward rather inconspicuous.The temporarily abandoned protective devices were reopened in 1975, shortly before the closure of the shaft II, and continued to drive up, creating a total network of 1,200 m with various, even surface, training and event rooms. Three different struts, three road drives and a shaft were created. The "mine" is used by the RAG for education and training purposes and as a venue or marketing instrument. Everything that is technically dispersed in a normal mine at great depths and over wide areas can be concentrated, tested and inspected here in a location without long journeys. In the training mine, machines and systems are tested individually and in interaction with one another, and inspections are carried out by the monitoring authorities.

    You can visit this training mine. It is best if you register as a group immediately. However, the dates are partly booked well in advance, so take care in good time. Small groups may join another group.

    The visit lasts about 3 hours and is free of charge.

    "Only a few meters underground: A former dump offers the inner workings of a complete deep mine - until 2018 still as a training facility for miners, but then also for school classes and mining enthusiasts.
    Today, a training mine has been set up in the former mining dump of the Recklinghausen colliery. The additional rock that was produced when sinking the manholes in the course drives and the promotion, was piled up directly next to the colliery. Over the years, the rock has condensed, and the heap is now planted with a considerable stock of trees. During World War II, shelters were set up in the heap for miners and neighboring residents.
    In 1975, these tunnels were further developed, and thus developed from a teaching mine for the workforce of today's RAG German hard coal. A network of over 1,200 meters in length with different extraction facilities, track drives and a shaft, the underground world is realistic. What constitutes a mine is often located 1,000 meters deep underground in the mountains and is scattered over many square kilometers depending on the nature of the deposit. In the training mine, the most important machines and equipment are concentrated in a manageable space, from coal production, access and transport to communication and control facilities. Here, the course participants can train in addition to the theory in the immediate vicinity of the practical application. In addition, the training mine for school classes and mining interested offers an insight into the modern German hard coal mining.
    After the cessation of coal mining in 2018, however, the RAG no longer has the means and opportunities to continue to operate the training mine. Nevertheless, it should be preserved - for example, to continue to test machines and conduct training. And of course, visitors could continue to take a look into the "underground world" - albeit without access to the deposit. "

    At the time of the active coal mining of the DSK, apprentices were trained here for the underground operation. Longwall construction, pump operation, water conservation, Einhäneinenhängebau, coal planer, etc everything was here to find and training purposes in operation.
