Mined from 1639 to 1978. Sweden's second largest silver mine (after Sala).
The marble- and metavolcanic-hosted Pb–Zn–(Ag–Sb–As) deposits of the Hällefors district, comprise both stratabound sulphides and discordant, Ag-rich sulphide–sulphosalt veins.

Mineralization age: Statherian : 1679 Ma to 1658 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded below and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
