Pb-Zn sulphide mineralizations in quartz-carbonate veins.

NOTE: The grid reference is centered on the area.

First records are from the 15th century, last activities were in 1856.

The mine comprised about 11 adits and open pits, some remains were visible in 1990 but no adit was accessible.

Remains of the mining activities are at
N46.71265 E8.98136 (Swiss grid 717955 174653)
