Bolesław Śmiały Coal Mine


One of the oldest mines in Poland, located in Łaziska Górne. The first records date back to 1779 and the Szczęście Henryka Coal Mine, which began to operate in the present-day mining area after merging some smaller coal mines. From 1945, the entire mine was called Bolesław Śmiały Coal Mine. In 2003–2016, it belonged to Kompania Węglowa S.A., and since 2016 it has been part of the Polish Mining Group. A conveyor belt connects it to the Łaziska Power Station.
