NAGREBANJE S POMOČJO KROTCE IN TRIGLNOV IN POLNJENJE VOZIČKA/
COLLECTING ORE WITH LARGE HOES AND TROUGHS, AND CART LOADING

A trough-like container, called trigl (length 43 cm, width 35 cm, height 10 cm) was originally made of wood and later from metal. It served to collect ore from the ground with the help of a large hoe, and carrying and discharging it into a minecart called truhca (a small coffin; a “Hungarian system” cart). It took ten to twelve troughs to fill the cart (300 kg). It was also used for discarding backfill material, i.e. spoil, burnt ore, and gangue. The openings (drifts, adits, etc.) had to be refilled after mining.

Trigl is a shallow rectangular container made of steel sheet (1.5 mm thick). On each of the longer sides, it bears a bent handle for car

Trigl (dolžina 43 cm, širina 35 cm, višina 10 cm) je bil sprva lesen, nato pa kovinski. Služil je za nagrebanje rude s tal s pomočjo krotce in stresanje v trugco - ogrski voziček. Deset do dvanajst triglnov je bilo potrebnih, da je bila truhca polna (300 kg). Uporabljali pa so ga tudi za metanje zasipnega materiala - jamska jalovina, prežgana ruda, prod ali pesek. Po končanem odkopavanju so namreč morali rudniške rove zastaviti oz. zasuti z materialom.

Trigl (nečke) je plitka podolgovata posoda izdelana iz jeklene pločevine (debeline 1,5 mm). Na vsaki strani daljših ploskev ima ukrivljen ročaj za prijemanje. Konca krajših ploskev sta izdelana navzven in pod kotom.

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.
