Ancient copper mine, worked since the Bronze age until 1855.
About 60 adits existed in the 16th century.
Copper mineralisation in the Greywacke zone ('Grauwackenzone').
Sulfide mineralization (chalcopyrite) associated with graphite-bearing schists.

One adit is now a tourist mine ('Paradeisstollen').
Located near Radmer an der Hasel (at the end of the valley of the Radmer commune).
