An amazing video

This video shows the wonderful underwater exploration of an old mine in Salmchateau, in the very heart of the Coticule industry.
This one is an old slate mine, but you can see Coticules layers running through the slate at some parts of the video.

And while we're at it, you can see some great pictures of the Old Rock mine, also located at Salmchateau, by following this link:

Thank you Bart. It is interesting to see the amount of work people are willing to perform to make a living.
In a week or so I will be able to try out an old coticule labeled Salm. That will allow me to compare it to an Old Rock, a Deep Rock, an Extra Select Special and a new Kosher grade plus a few others that are not labeled.
It should be an interesting razor meeting in Missouri on June 5.

Amazing… even the wooden ladders are perfectly preserved but Wadaminute??? All that yellow stuff along the walls is Coticules?... Mother of Loads!!!:w00t:

Czar-O-Coticule… you all got the stuff everywhere… reminds me of the Inca Gold.

Thanks for sharing my friend

I'd love to hear all about these, Randy. Have fun with your upcoming meeting in Missouri.:thumbup:

In case someone hasn't seen Stefan's excellent video about Ardennes Coticule (Stefan is the German reseller of "Belgischer Brocken"), here's a link. The guy in the video is Maurice Celis, owner of Ardennes.

isn't it like this as long as it stays under water it preserves but the moment in comes in contact with O[sub]2[/sub] it starts to rot?
