     Future Plans
    All traces of human activity in Svalbard dating from before 1946 are protected. Although this mine is newer than that, it will not be demolished and will eventually be covered by the cultural heritage law. While safe from demolition, the buildings will eventually collapse on their own or be bought down by an avalanche.
