The find was made during reconstruction of a diner within the premises of the historic silver mine. Within a bottle there was a yellow sheet of paper. After its extraction it was revealed that the letter contained among others a list of workers who in the 1970s constructed a building over the mine’s shaft. The bottle was originally used to store alcohol.
