Underground "leucophyllite" (a mixture of mainly muscovite and chlorite) and talc mine of the Naintsch Mineralwerke GmbH (part of Luzenac Co.). Four miners produce 15,000 t per year (situation 2015).
Although the present mine was opened only in September 2006, "leucophyllite" was mined here since 1917.
