Annaberg-Frohnau mining landscape: Silver

In 1496, Annaberg was the first planned mining town established in the region, due to the rich silver deposits found in the Frohnau mining landscape. The collection of technological systems located both above and below ground document the transition from silver mining to cobalt extraction, then to the mining of bismuth, cobalt and nickel ore in the 18th century, all the way through to uranium mining in the Central Erzgebirge region during the final mining period.
