A copper mine, started in 1906. Until 1909, the shaft was sunk to a depth of 745 m, but production did not commence before 1915 and full output capacity was not reached until 1927. In 1951 the shaft was renamed Ernst Thälmann Shaft. The mine was closed in 1962.

Production from this mine was 12,3 million tons of ore, corresponding to 260,000 tons of copper and about 10% of the overall production from the Mansfeld basin. The cone-shaped dump is 130 m high.

Access to the locality requires permission from the Mansfeld Anlagenbau und Umwelttechnik AG, who owns the property.
