An opencast sulfur mine located near Tarnobrzeg.

Abstract from Gradowski et al., 1992:
Sulphur deposits being surface mined in the Tarnobrzeg area of Poland formed post-depositionally in the vuggy limestone layer above gypsum and anhydrite beds. Sulphur was deposited mostly as powder but also as coarsely crystalline masses and as free-growing crystals. Other materials present in the sulphur-bearing horizon include calcite, gypsum, quartz, aluminum oxide, celestine, and barite. Mineral specimens of these minerals collected at the mine are described.

In 1984 it produced 2.342 million tons of ore.
