The Silver Mines of Skalitz were situated just outside the village of Silver Skalitz and, as the village, they were under the administration of Sir Radzig Kobyla. They were without a doubt the most important and rich structure in the whole Sasau Region.

Because of the value of the silvers in that period, King Sigismund of Luxembourg, after he made abdicate his brother Wenceslas IV, invaded the kingdom of Bohemia and started raiding every settlement who didn’t side with him. After he conquested the city of Kuttenberg, he invaded also Silver Skalitz and ransacked the mines, but not before destroying and burning the main village.

Dozens of miners were killed in the assault, among them even a brother of Theresa who used to work there.
