Ancient iron mines, working goethite-bearing quartz veins hosted by volcano-sedimentary rocks of the Thann series (upper Visé group). Three mining districts were distinguished: Steinby-le-Haut, Steinby-du-Milieu and Steinby-le-Bas, of which Steinby-le-Haut was the most productive. The mines were started in the 17th century and abandoned in 1859. Some of them were re-worked for a short period of time after 1873.
Located SW of Thann.
