I have had a rectangular medal in a drawer for a long time and wonder if you could advise if you recognise it? 20cm x 30cm On the front is a seated man with a pick and a lady standing on his right with her right arm stretched out and with the inscription Mines 1935.On the reverse it would appear to be the same lady her right hand holding a torch over a smaller lady and the writing on this side is Amille Heine
