The Frantiska shaft was excavated in the 1840’s in a slope above the Lampertice railway station. Originally an extraction shaft, dewatered by the drainage channel called ‘Antonin’, later it became the air shaft for the Jan Sverma mine. The hoisting tower is made of fair-faced brickwork and covered with a gable roof, and probably dates back to 1848 just like the adjacent engine room.
