The paper deals with the Prloš mine, which was located in the area of modern day mine Lece. Around the mine, which was administratively a part of the nâhiye of Dubočica or Kruševac Sancak , a workers’ hâss was formed and in addition the mine was given the status of an independent mukâta‘a, which indicates that the Prloš was worthy of attention and investment for the Ottoman administration. The mine was under the financial control of the Belgrade Supervisory Authority (nezâret ). Special attention was paid to the position of the mine itself, as well as leases, who were the tenants, what were the amounts of lease and how much the lease lasted. The paper is based on new and previously unused sources of Ottoman provenance
