The mines functioning in Zabrze to the north of Bytomka river: Concordia, Ludwik, Jadwiga (later Pstrowski), Mikulczyce and Rokitnica, as a result of limited resources, were merged. In 1973 a corporation under the name of Kopalnia Węgla Kamiennego “Pstrowski” was born – the most structurally advanced mining facility in Poland, underground and above ground. In 1994, upon exhausting all of its profitable resources it was put into liquidation, which lasted until 1997. Since 2002, the residual resources have ben mined by the first private mine since II world war – Zakład Górniczy Siltech Sp. z o.o.
