Fragant

FRAGANT   

In Fragrant gold and silver mining took place already in 1350 for the supply of the mint of Lienz. At 1500 work concentrated on the "Goldberg at the Kessl lake".

In the years 1740 to 1780 up to 1000 metric centners of pure copper and up to 4000 metric centners of sulphur were extracted every year. At the beginning of the 20th century
the business was maintained with only a few workers.

The great copper need of the 1st World War induced the
"Ärar" to purchase the Fragant pits in 1916 and to restart mining industry.

About 300 workers were on duty and about 100 000 metric centners of iron pyrites were extracted annually. After the collapse of the year 1918 the Fragant copper mining was stopped.
