Putzkammer Alp, Rinder valley (Gafluna valley), Verwall group, Montafon, Vorarlberg, Austria

Name(s) in local language(s): Putzkammeralpe, Rindertal (Gaflunatal), Verwallgruppe, Montafon, Vorarlberg, Österreich
 
Trial prospect on copper sulphides (age unknown). Later, in the 19th century or earlier, also exploited for magnetite. Two calc-silicate lenses contain locally enriched sulphides (chalcopyrite, sphalerite, pyrite). There is no evidence of contact-metamorphism (Kolitsch & Brandstätter, 2012). The occurrence of cassiterite in the calc-silicates is noteworthy, and can be presently not explained from a geochemical-genetic point of view (Kolitsch & Brandstätter, 2012).

Prospects, dumps and outcrops at about 1700-1750 asl.

Note: Lat/Long is given for the lower lens.
