An old lead and zinc mine, closed in 1953. The mine site and most of the dumps have been landscaped. Part of a dump remains east of the road leading from Altwiesloch to Dielheim, but it is heavily overgrown and most of the sulphides have decomposed into a dark mass that smells of sulphurous oxide.

The mine worked a hydrothermal-metasomatic zinc-lead-silver deposit of Mississippi Valley type (MVT), which is hosted in shell limestones and controlled by a system of SE-trending fractures. The main ore was Schalenblende, composed of sphalerite and galena with minor marcasite and melnikovite (and no wurtzite at this locality !), which often formed botryoidal concretions of a stalactite-like shape that were up to 40 cm long and up to 15 cm across.

A very smilar mineral paragenesis was found in the limestone quarry near Nußloch (see: http://www.mindat.org/loc-32056.html).
