Industrial coal mining in pécs in the mountains of Mecca began in the late 18th century after Joseph II was allowed to open a mine in the village Vasas near PEC. The Danube Steamshipping Company began geological surveys in 1852, and for these purposes, bought local land. At that time large-scale mining in the area. Using technical innovation and pursuing social policy, the company is almost a century defined the life of the whole region. After the Second world war the production of coal and uranium mines of the region have international significance.
