In few last years the survey has been continuing - the evidence of it is the valuable finding from the year 1997. V. Struhár found a completely well preserved burial-ground, which is the only evidence of the Low Eneolitic settlement in central part of the Northern Slovakia. One of the most important finding is the unique finding of the copper bull from the 4. millenium B.C. It is the oldest metallic statue of the domestificated animal.
