Name(s) in local language(s): Lohningbruch (Lohninger Bruch), Hüttwinkltal, Rauriser Tal, Hohe Tauern, Salzburg, Österreich
 
The bottom of the Hüttwinkl valley is filled with rocksled material, originating from different places in the Krumlbach and upper Hüttwinkl valleys. These boulders are worked in the Kaiserer and Lohning quarries. The minerals therefore, originate from a large variety of different parageneses.

Presently (2005), the Lohning quarry is not strictly active - the owner excavates marble from an upper quarry and cuts marble plates etc. for subsequent sale.

NOTE: some (or all?) of the "davidite" and "loveringite" reported from here appears to be cleusonite (see also Kaiserer quarry).
