Geocache Description:


Halsvuoressa sijaitsi 1700 -luvulla hopeakaivos. Vielä nykyisinkin paikalla on näkyvillä kasa louhittua kiveä ja veden valtaama kuilun suuaukko. Nähtävyytenä paikka on vaatimaton, mutta kuilun reunalla seisoessaan kannattaa miettiä, millaisissa työoloissa ja millaisin työkaluin ja -menetelmin tuon ajan kaivosmiehet ovat joutuneet leipänsä ansaitsemaan.

There was a silver mine at Halsvuori in 18th century. Even today you can see the water-filled pithead and a heap of stones in front of it. The place does not look very special, but think, what kind of hard work the miners had to do about 250 years ago.

Auto kannattaa jätää Halsvuorentien alkupäähän, sillä tie on kapea, eikä kääntymismahdollisuuksia ole erityisen hyvin. Tien reunassa sijaitsee muutamia pysäköintiin sopivia levennyksiä, joista viimeisin ennen kätköä on jyrkähkön mäen yläosassa.

We recommend that you leave your car at the beginning of the Halsvuorentie -road, because there is no parking possibility just near the cache.
