A quarry in Devonian limestones, operated by SHI (Sauerländer Hartkalkstein-Industrie GmbH) (formerly owned by the Mitteldeutsche Hartsteinindustrie GmbH). Within fault zones that cross the quarry, hydrothermally formed baryte-quartz veins including a suite of lead, zinc and copper minerals crop out. Minerals are also found in karst caves.

Located near Bleiwäsche, about 9 km SW of Bad Wünnenberg.

NOTE: Collecting here is forbidden since February 2008.
