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

Private property - collecting is strictly 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]

"The owner states that digging for minerals is prohibited. He expressly asks to be aware of this. This seems to be due to ruthless collectors, who repeatedly make the forest road impassable for vehicles (including emergency vehicles) with their overburden and continue to damage nature, especially the plants that grow there with difficulty (see undermined fallen tree). We urge you to pay attention to the "do not enter" signs!" [Joachim L., property owner, November 2012]
