The coal mine in Beletinec was opened in 1894. The owner was the First Zagorje Mining Society for Coal. The opening of coal mines in the entire Beletinec region, brought economic progress and employment. A lot was invested in the modernization of coal mines, so the air railway (cable car) was built. The mine had other tracks for traction, 3 wagons, 6 horses and 22 wagons. The quality of coal from the Beletinec coal mine was at a high price.
