Note: The German mineral dealer Wolfgang Wendel used the unnecessary name "Chloridstollen (which means "Chloride adit") for this adit.
Note on the mineral list: Most specimens of supposed botallackite (or "zincian botallackite") which have been analyzed in a lab to date have turned out to be the new species kapellasite. A recent discovery by Mr. Heinz Fabritz (Branko Rieck analysis) showed that botallackite actually occurs at the Mine No. 19, however they are very sparse and distinctive in their appearance.
