Ancient lead mine south of the village of Bleibuir and north of Wielspütz, formerly situated in and east of the Bleibach valley. Mining ceased at the end of the 19th century around 1880. Mineralization is similar to the Mechernich type - impregnations and veinlets of lead ore in Triassic sandstones of the Bunter. Sometimes also referred to as Gute Hoffnung, Bescheid.
