Underground Mine of the Eighteenth Century

Posted on November 8, 2012 by team


The deposit was opened in far 1775 and started to be used for copper ore extraction. They worked only with two adits first, then they already had five.They didn't extract enough copper so the mine was soon closed. In 1888 the mine was not already listed as a functioning one.

Now we are going to go down and see what has remained from that time.

Probably there was a fire here - people used torches then.

    wow fasinating I cant imagine to work like this to take a pick and keep pounding for hours and hours. Is the green rock the one with the copper? I wish we could see just one piece of what they were after. The weight of the roof after all this time you can see the power of the wooden beams to hold so much. I think its only because the wood can crush a bit but still b strong. How far does it go and what is the air like? Will they ever use it again?
