The “Hoym” coal mine was established in 1792. It was initiated by the Minister of the Silesian Province- Charles Hoym. It was a state-owned mine,  situated between Niewiadom and Biertułtowy, where the beds were exploited by twenty shallow shafts. About 150-220 tones of coal were mined there every year. Soon next coal mines started to appear in the area.
The last truck of coal was mined on the 11th August 1995. The real liquidation of the Ignacy Mine took place on 13th September 2006 (Friday).
