Silverpit and surrounding lands

Zahar-zigil (Kh. Silver-pit) was a Dwarven mining colony in the Ered Mithrin established in T.A. 2149.

In T.A. 2590 the fire-drake Ruingurth occupied the abandoned Dwarf-hold of Zahar-zigil at Goat Mountain. There is no tradition of his death; he was still alive in T.A. 2644.

Zahar-zigil probably refers to dwarven name for Goat Mountain, which in dwarven tradition has been named: "Silver? spike".
