On the waste tips of the former mines Hendrik and Emma you can find plant fossils from the Carboniferous. Despite daily removal of material, there is still an enormous amount of material remaining. In practice, this is the only locality in the region that still yields many coal fossils. A permit to access the site is relatively easy to obtain.

The site is located at the Waubacherweg, Brunssum.
Depending on the direction you come from, many options are possible. Coming from the north, take the exit 47 at Born and follow Brunssum. This route takes you over German territory. Back in the Netherlands, there are 3 roundabouts, at every one of them, go straight ahead. Then, take the first to the left (Hoogenboschweg). On the next roundabout, again straight ahead.
