Mining Memories - Knutefjell & Haus Sachsen, Kongsberg, Norway

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Check out this beautiful drone video from the heart of the old silver mining region of Norway, compliments of AirVuz contributor ToB Creations.  The video includes footage of the Knutefjell forest area west of Konsberg as well as the Haus Sachsen mine.  The discovery of silver in what is now the County of Buskerud in the early 17th century ushered in a 300+ year period of intensive mining, during which time nearly half a billion ounces of the metal were extracted and the Kongsberg area became one of the wealthiest in Europe.
