  • Short Summary

    Giant dredger in the Golpa coal mines of Germany is demonstrated.

  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Almost reminiscent of the mythical Martian machines Mr Wells used to write about, this giant dredge scoops valleys in the Golpa brown coal mines of Germany."

    L/S of a large dredger. M/S of what I presume is the arm of the dredger - or could possibly be a bridge. Various shots of parts of the dredger. Facts and figures are given in intertitles. C/U of man operating controls of dredger. Various shots of the scoops of the dredger being moved along. Shot of an industrial processing plant in the distance. Panning shot of the dredger.
