Jastrzębie Coal Mine


The mine, which opened in 1962, was located partly in Jastrzębie Zdrój and partly in Mszana. In 1963, it was merged with the Moszczenica Coal Mine, creating a Jastrzębie-Moszczenica Coal Mine. It existed for three years. In 1966, the mines were separated, and their previous names were restored. In 1994, the mines were reconnected and incorporated into the Jas-Mos Coal Mine as Ruch Moszczenica Coal Mine. In 2000, Ruch Moszczenica Coal Mine ceased operations, and the currently operating Jas-Mos Coal Mine is part of Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa.
