Geocache Description:


[CZ]
Tato jednoducha cache vas zavede na temer zapomenutou a nenavstevovanou kulturni pamatku na uzemi Ostravy. Ani mala navstevnost ji nijak neubira na krase a na vetsinu z vas na tomto miste jiste dychne historie. Odlov doporucuji jen za svetla. Nechodte prosim pres ani kolem kolejiste (je tam navic zed, kterou by jste museli prekonat) - bezpecny a snadny pristup je z opacne strany, nez jsou koleje (z ulice Holvekova). Prosim nerozebirejte nijak budovu u ktere je cache !!!

V roce 1896 zacalo hloubeni jamy, ktera dostala jmeno podle hrabete Alexandra Palaviciniho, prezidenta Severni drahy Ferdinandovy, ktera byla zakladatelem dolu. Ocelova tezni vez, ktera ma vysku 30,3 m, byla postavena v roce 1897.
Tezba zacala v roce 1898 a dul mel 938 zamestnancu. Mechanizace nebyla velka. Uhli dole k jame svazeli kone a teprve v roce 1918 je nahradily benzolove lokomotivy.


V roce 1926 byl Dul Alexander administrativne preveden pod Dul Zarubek a stal se jeho pomocnym zavodem. Slouzil pouze k cerpani dulnich vod, vetrani a pruchodu lidi a materialu. Veskere uhli se ovsem tezilo na Dole Zarubek.
Za dobu sve samostatnosti vytezil Dul Alexander 5 910 960 tun uhli. Tezni jama byla postupne prohloubena na konecnou hloubku 945 metru a vydusna jama na 775,3 metru.
Od roku 1951 tam pracovali a pripravovali se na sve povolani hornicti ucni.
Na povrchovem strojnim zarizeni a v jame se delala jen udržba a pravidelne se cerpala dulni voda.


K 1. lednu 1979 byla cast dulniho pole Dolu Alexander i s teznim zarizenim prevedena k Dolu Marsal Jeremenko.
Cinnost Dolu Alexander skoncila 31. prosince 1992. Tezni jama, hluboka 945 metru, byla zasypana v roce 1993 a vydusna jama, hluboka 775,3 m, pak v roce 1994. Smutnou strankou v historii dolu je rok 1966, kdy pri vybuchu plynu zahynul jeden hornik a devet pracovniku bylo tezce zraneno.
Obe tezni veze dolu zustaly zachovany a jsou kulturnimi pamatkami CR. Za zminku rovnez stoji,ze zamestnanci tohoto dolu v letech 1947-48 upravili nedaleky park a zridili tam malou zoologickou zahradu, ktera pozdeji tvorila zaklad zoo ve Stromovce na Slezske Ostrave.

Easy cache, which will show you almoust forgotten cultural landmark in Ostrava. A place, where history will breathe on you. I recomend to hunt this cache only during daylight.

In 1896 digging of a hole began. It was named after count Alexander Palavicini, the president of Northen Ferdinand railroad – the founder of this mine.
Mining tower is made from steel, it’s height is 30,3 meters and it was built in 1897.
Mining began in 1898 and the mine had 938 employes. Mechanisation wasn’t good. Coal down in the mine had been transported to the hole using horses – they were replaced in 1918 by benzol locomotives. In 1926 was the Alexander Mine delegated under a Zarubek Mine and it began to be it’s auxiliary concern. It was used to pump out mine water, to ventilation and as a gateway for people and material, but all coal was mined from the Zarubek mine.
At times when the Alexander mine was self-dependent it mined out more than 5 910 960 tons of coal from it. The mining hole was deepen to 945 meters and ventilation hole to 775,3 meters.
From 1951 there were working and learning miner trainees.
1.1.1979 a part of coal field and it’s equipment from the Alexander mine was delegated to Marsal Jeremenko mine.
The Alexander mine stopped it’s activity in the 31. of December in 1992. Mining hole was buried under in 1993 and the ventilation hole was buried under in 1994.
Sad incident happened in this mine in 1966, when an explosion killed one miner and nine miners were seriously injured.
Both towers of this mine were conserved and now they are marked as historical landmarks of Czech Republic.
It’s good to mention, that mine employess arranged nearby park and they created a small Zoo , which was later moved and expanded to Stromovka in Slezska Ostrava.
