Name(s) in local language(s):Flussschacht, Rottleberode, Stolberg, Harz, Sachsen-Anhalt, Deutschland
Other/historical names associated with this locality:Flussschacht, Rottleberode


Fluorite deposit, actively worked until 1990.
The veins (forming part of the so-called Flußschacht-Backofen vein system, 'Flußschächter-Backöfner Gangzug') were formed by hydrothermal intrusions in fault zones of the Harzgerode complex during the lower Tertiary age.

Located north of Rottleberode and south of Stolberg.
