Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Fill the mine shaft (I assume it's in an old salt mine or something like that) with concrete. Any civilisation with sufficiently determined archaeologists to go through a hundred meter of concrete to get to your ancient burial chamber either makes sure to check for radiation (from radon emissions from the concrete, if nothing else) or is too dumb to live anyway.

Filling the tunnel mouth with concrete will happen at decommissioning sometime after 2100. Are we even going make it till then? You have to hope and plan.

People could accidentally encounter the tunnel without drilling through the concrete. It is possible to dig hundreds of meters without advanced industrial equipment, without knowing anything about radioactivity. Very unlikely but possible. It's the time span that makes the whole project incomprehensible.

Schengen is toast!
