    Coal Mine Tailings in Donetsk

    by Roadquill Written Dec 10, 2012

    Favorite thing: Donetsk was founded on coal. There are coal mines all over, and huge piles of tailing from the mine stand out as you approach the city. There is so much coal that the locals often would head out to dig up some coal for thier own use. This turned out to be a dangerous proposition as the mines would often collapse or the air would be poisonous. Many would be coal gatherers never returned and many are never found.
