Rudna Glava (Ore Head) is a mining site in present-day eastern Serbia that demonstrates one of the earliest evidences of European copper mining and metallurgy, dating to the 5th millennium BC[1]. Shafts were cut into the hillside, with scaffolding constructed for easy access to the veins of ore. It belongs to the Vinča culture[2], as is shown by pottery-finds.

Another early mine is located at Ai Bunar near Stara Zagora in Bulgaria.
