Few people know that Štěpánov nad Svratkou and its surroundings once belonged to the most famous mining regions in Bohemia and Moravia. The local ore, rich in copper and silver, was mined from deep mines from the seventeenth century until the middle of the nineteenth century, while the last exploration pits were excavated only before the First World War. The remnant of lost fame is the mining chapel in the village of Švařec and of course a large number of pits and shafts of various lengths and depths. Due to the poor condition of some mining venues, we will not publish their location and description. However, we will be happy to provide a complete list of them to the professional cavers.
