To cover these needs was necessary furthest penetration into forested areas. The workforce was deficient. Romanians from Banat area Oraviţa whose obligations robot consisted especially in cutting wood in the forest and transport them to me and BOCS and the production of charcoal in these BOCS, have managed to cope with increasingly difficult growing demands offices mining . However, they were not willing to work a very long time at a considerable distance from the place of residence. To remove this anomaly, mining foreman Franz Müller von Reichenstein superior, superior Montanist Redange administrator, accountant foreman upper metallurgical Fluck Lammer Higher Mining Office of Oravita decided colonization of forestry workers, Cărbunari and carriers in Austria.
