Ancient lead mine (abandoned in 1940) working on quartz veins hosted by lower Devonian sandstone and clay schists. The mine was connected underground with the nearby Schwalenbach mine.
Today Wohlfahrt mine is part of the visitor’s mine and mining museum “Grube Wohlfahrt”.
Located close to Rescheid and 7 km south of Hellenthal.
