Geographical position of opencast mining areas
The redevelopment room of the Goitzsche with its numerous building fields and today´s former mining areas is situated to two third in the Federal State Saxony-Anhalt and to one third in the Free State of Saxony.

The former brown coal reservoir surrounds the town Bitterfeld from the north-east to the south-west and encircles a mining area of 60 square kilometres.

It extends along the "B100" and the "B183" and is marked by the villages Friedersdorf,Mühlbeck and Pouch in the north-east,by Löbnitz,Sausedlitz and Benndorf in the south,by Petersroda,Roitzsch,Holzweißig and Bitterfeld in the West. (next)
