Stordo Other Rock Mine (Norway)


Underground pyrite mine (Stordø Kisgruber), opened in the 1860s (?) and closed in 1903. Supplied pyrite for explosive manufacture. Reopened by Belgian interests in 1907 who sold out to a German concern in 1912. Mine was the target of a commando raid during WW II owing to its ongoing importance in explosive manufacture. Mine finally closed in 1968. The mine is currently being 'restored' by an enthusiastic bunch of locals who have done an incredible amount of work to retain a key component of the local heritage and industrial archaeology.
The interested reader is advised to pay them a visit if they're in that neck of the woods.
