Skalka Mine is an extracted iron-ore mine near Mníšek pod Brdy that has been largely inactive since extraction ceased in 1966. It is less developed than Josef, but larger, with 12 km of passages. It is currently being used for a geothermal experiment in which rocks are being assessed for their ability to act as heat exchangers for local heating systems.


 


There are more facilities to come, we are currently in discussion with these facilities about engaging them in the TCS. We would be extremely happy to hear about other facilities that would like to engage.
