Kurt is one of the push divers of a team that discovered an old slate mine in the region of Ardennes, Belgium in 2021. The last working day was in 1913. The mine is on private property, but through searches and permissions from the owner and municipalities, we have currently laid more than 600m of line to a maximum depth of 70m. These dives are filmed and photographed to later appear in the museum and the hotel of the landowner. This project was news on National TV/News RTBF.
