The "screw" is actually the fossilized remains of a type of ancient, simple sea animal.

According to Yulia Zamanskaya, when a resident of Vladivostok was lighting the fire during a cold winter evening, he found a rail-shaped metal detail which was pressed in one of the pieces of coal that the man used to heat his home. Mesmerized by his discovery, the responsible citizen decided to seek help from the scientists of Primorye region. After the metal object was studied by the leading experts the man was shocked to learn about the assumed age of his discovery. The metal detail was supposedly 300 million years old and yet the scientists suggest that it was not created by nature but was rather manufactured by someone. The question of who might have made an aluminum gear in the dawn of time remains unanswered.

There is no way of really knowing if this is a true find. There doesn't seem to be enough interest to take a hard look at these things, and considering current mainstream mindset, it's not all that hard to consider that this could be a true discovery, and the PTB are quite willing to sweep it under the table.
If it is an ancient civilization, then it would be a civilization of dinosaurs.
I would vote for ancient alien explorers, but in speculation like this, anything is possible. Time travelers, why not?
If it is was any of the above, where could they be now after 3 million years?
Most likely, we would be their lab experiment.
