Hello all happy Ädelforsingar
Niklas Karlsson and I have arranged a visit to the Zinc Mine on Saturday 21 October. We will gather at 09.45 at the entrance to the Zinkgruvan. There a guide will meet us and we will be given the beneficiation plant and the mine itself, which we will be able to go down in. Bring a geologist's hammer because it is possible that we will have to tap rock inside the mine or on the mine's warp piles.
The visit costs SEK 50 per person. Bring even money.
Registration must be made to Rolf Guldström on phone 0383-46 00 00.
The Zinkgruvan community is located east of Askersund at the northern end of Vättern.
