One of the most important mercury mines in the Stahlberg district. Known for moschellandsbergite and (mercury rich) silver. Large dumps and collapsed adits in the forest are the only remains of the mine.
Collected here a few years ago when living in the area, produced some small fine minerals, scratching away the leaf debris will reveal the old tailings, the best pieces are found under the fir trees on the edges of the little clearing in the forest. (Comment by Michael Lambert II).
