Cretaceous iron ore deposits occur in a NW-trending fault zone to the east and northeast of Sulzbach-Rosenberg. The individual deposits, from southeast to northwest, are Eichelberg, St Georg, St Anna, Karoline, Etzmannsberg, Fromm (formerly Delphin, renamed in 1895) and Großenfalz.

Iron has been mined in this area since mediaeval times, as was confirmed by finds of 9th/10th century furnaces in archaeological excavations. The earliest document dates back to 1348, when the citizens of Sulzbach were granted the rights to mine iron from the Eichelberg deposit. The Eichelberg Mine was also the last mine to close in 1977.


Note: On specimen labels, Sulzbach-Rosenberg is occasionally used as a generic name for the Upper Palatinate iron mining district and may refer to any of the mines around Amberg, Auerbach, Krumbach and Vilseck-Langenbruck (see separate entries).
