THE MINING COLLECTION IN ČRNA NA KOROŠKEM

Several hundred years of mining tradition in Črna na Koroškem and its surroundings influenced the town's image and its way of life. The story of extraction lead ore is preserved as moveable cultural heritage displayed in a rock in the town square.

Some mining machines and equipment that supplement the story of extracting this precious ore are displayed in front of the old mineshaft. More than 19 million tons of ore were excavated in the 64 km2 ore deposit in the upper part of the Meža Valley in over 330 years, and more than 800 kilometres of tunnels were constructed.
