Threre is a new threat posed by the planned Ościsłowo open-pit mine – not to the economy, nor to the environment, but to the earliest historical heritage and cultural identity of many Europeans. Megalithic tombs 5,5 thousand years old had been discovered in Góry, Wielkopolska. They are located right on top of the brown coal deposit, which ZE PAK S.A. wants to dig out. Will the ancient tombs win with the mining industry? Right now, it is for the EIA authority to decide.
