Overview
Details

Join us for an hour’s walk through 300 years of mining history. The guided tour takes you through the Nyberget mine dating from the 17th century and the Olav’s Mine from the 20th century, descending 50 metres below ground and 500 m into the mountain before reaching the massive Miner’s Hall.

Storwartz was one of the largest mining areas in the Røros region. Nyberget Mine was in operation between 1650–1717 and 1861–1890. Olav`s Mine, much younger, opened in 1936. Mining technology developed greatly over time – while the extraction of copper ore in Nyberget Mine started with firing, hammer and chisel, Olav`s Mine was mined with pneumatic drill and dynamite.
