Piesberg

Der Piesberg im Osnabrücker Land wird durch Bergbau genutzt. Die erste urkundliche Erwähnung des Piesberger Bergbaus stammt aus dem Jahr 1461. Anfangs wurde hier Steinkohle abgebaut. Heute wird der Berg als Steinbruch genutzt. Neben extrem hartem Sandstein treten auch fossilreiche Ton- und Schiefersteine auf. Jährlich werden hier etwa 2 Millionen Tonnen Gestein abgebaut. Ein großer Teil des Piesberges ist dadurch von einem Berg zu einem Loch transformiert.

Piesberg is a mountain of the Osnabrück Land region, which is used by mining. The first documentary mention of mining in this mountain comes from the year 1461. In the beginning, coal was diminished here. Today the mountain is used as a stone quarry. Beside extremely hard sandstone, sound stones and slate stones rich in fossil also appear. Yearly about 2 million tons of rock are diminished here. A big part of Piesberg is thereby transformed from a mountain into a hole.

    We name that "колонка". Is it remotely controlled?

      Thanks, dear Marbess, for the Russian name. I did not know the name "колонка". 
      I would have used the German word "Kran" for translation: "паровозный водопроводный кран" :-) 

      I think, Колонка has no remote control. The water is controlled only by a hand-operated valve on the ground.
