ZVONEC V PRIZIVNICI/A BELL IN A CHECK-IN ROOM

Po letu 1890 je šino zamenjal zvonec v prizivnici. V prizivnici je »obergutman« (poslovodja) poimensko klical rudarje, tako preverjal njihovo prisotnost in iz »šehtnbuha« (delovne knjige) prebral vsak dan razpored za delo. Pred odhodom v jamo je vsak rudar vzel s smrtne ure svojo markico, ki jo je po končanem šihtu (delu) vrnil na isto mesto, kar je potrdilo njegovo srečno vrnitev iz jame.


CHECK-IN ROOM
Every morning, miners gathered in the check-in room before descending into the pit. The supervisor called them by name and read the work schedule book, which miners reffered to as reading. Before going in to the pit, ich miner took his number plate from a special board (death clock) and replaced it at the end of his shift, cinfirming his safe return to the surface.

The heritage of Idrija inscribed on UNESCO`s World Heritage List comprises the heritage of the mine and mining activities in the broadest sense of the world: the mercury ore deposit, underground shafts and galleries, mine entrance buildings, administrative buildings, smelting plant, mercury and wheat storehouses, residental houses, school buildings, churches, and the paths along which mercury was transported abroad.
