We should not forget the coal miners who created the main mining value
Ludvík Trojan was born on the 14th of August 1932 in Horní Heřmanice near Velké Meziříčí. He studied to become a miner at the vocational school in Ostrava and he experienced difficult beginnings of coal mining in coal steams that were just half a metre high. He passed the school leaving exam at the Mining preparatory school and studied Mine Surveying at Mining University in Ostrava. He got his first work placement to the Uranium mines near Mariánské Lázně, 250 kilometres from his place of birth. When the uranium ore started to be mined also in Dolní Rožínka, which was just 30 kilometres from his home, he managed to get a job there. In 1958 he started to work as a mining surveyor and five years later when the Rožná II enterprise was opened he became the main engineer there. In that time, he was living with his family in a newly built housing estate in Dolní Rožínka that had developed from an agricultural village into the mining village with a lively mining culture. Ludvík became the production-technical enterprise deputy in 1970 and the company director eight years later. Even as the director he still had to obey the orders of all-enterprise committee of the Czechoslovak Communist Party which were often against his will. Ludvík retired in 1990 after he had worked in the Dolní Rožínka Uranium mines enterprise for thirty-two years.
