Ancient iron mine, started in the early 19th century and abandoned in 1949. Main ores were siderite and goethite, occurring as stratiform mineralizations of metasomatic origin in Upper Devonian limestones. The orebodies are strongly tectonically influenced, and mineralized layers alternate with non-mineralized ones. The phosphate minerals the mine is famous for do occur in cavities in massive goethite and limonite.
Located east of Hirschberg and about 3 km SW of Warstein. The coordinates roughly mark the center of an area of several 100 square meters, in which a few small dumps are located.

Note on the mineral list: for "coeruleolactite" see references and information given for Planerite-Turquoise Series.
