Use the spoiler picture, do not move stones. The cache is not in the stone wall of the dam.

Kraft behövdes vid Sala silvergruva för uppfordring av berg och till pumpar. I stort sett alla sjöar i närheten blev vattenmagasin, dammvallar byggdes och kanaler sprängdes och grävdes. Arbetena påbörjades på 1500-talet. Som mest fick man ut 39 hästkrafter vid gruvan.

Power was needed at the Sala silver mine for hoisting and pumping. Almost all lakes in the neighbourhood were used for water collection and storage, dams and canals were built starting in the 16th century. Maximum power obtained at the mine was 39 HP.
