To honor the may miners in the Ruhr Area and to spend a little comfort after the mining industry has gone this landmark was set up in Moers on top of the heap Rheinpreussen, what is the name of the former nearby coal mine. A lamp like this was constructed in a way that prevents an explosion which occurs when methane was set free. In modern days electric light were used.
