If you drive from Norberg towards Hedemora you first arrive to the village Kärrgruvan. From this place you can reach several interesting places. Pohemshjulet, Svinryggen and the Moss mine area. You find Moss mine in the same direction as Svinryggen. They are in the same area as Risberg and have several mine holes. Here ore with high percentage of iron could be found. Here you find a good place for parking your car or mc and also  eat bread and drink coffee. The power for water pumps came from Polhemshjulet and it's bar power system was built up to Moss mine.  The area is interesting to walk around in a very nice nature environment with it's many mine holes. From the beginning the ore could be broken at zero level and later more deep in the ground. For example Wedge mine with is 134 m deep. Break method was burning. This was made with heating the mine wall and of this the stone wall became brittle and easy to hoe the ore. Later during the 1700 came gunpowder, floating nitroglycerin and lastly dynamite. There is a mine museum in which building the pump system was placed. Horse path is an interesting rest of how ore was brought up. This area delivered ore to all furnaces around Norberg, Furnaces were normally built where a water stream could give enough with power for the furnace blowers. Norn was such a furnace, but 22 km from this place. Normally the ore was transported during wintertime but was not refined until spring time, when enough with water could come from snow melting. It was the farmers who performed this work. This was done with horse wagons. Payment was given when ore was delivered. Ore was also delivered to Ängelsberg. Much money were spent on spirit at the local inn. These mines were closed 1908.
