Ancient copper mine, working copper impregnations in sandstones.
Located 3 km NNE of Rösrath and 5.5 km west of Overath.

Private property - collecting prohibited.

„Lt. dem Eigentümer ist das Graben nach Mineralien untersagt. Er bittet ausdrücklich darum dies zu beachten. Dies scheint rücksichtslosen Sammlern geschuldet zu sein, die den Forstweg mit Ihrem Abraum immer wieder für Fahrzeuge (auch Rettungsfahrzeuge) unpassierbar machen und die Natur insbesondere die dort mühsam wachsenden Pflanzen nachhaltig schädigen (siehe untergrabener umgestürzter Baum). Wir bitten dringend die "Betreten Verboten"-Schilder zu beachten!“ [Joachim L., property owner, November 2012]
