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.

Regional Geology

This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

Jurassic
145 - 201.3 Ma



ID: 1381151
Jurassic intrusive and metamorphic terranes

Age: Jurassic (145 - 201.3 Ma)

Comments: Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.

Lithology: Intrusive and metamorphic terranes
