This mine and the Christiana mine are co-type localities for zincowoodwardite, and this mine and the Serpieri mine are co-type localities for natroglaucocerinite.

The adit is known for very nice cuprite crystals.

Notes:
- Labels stating "Kamareza Mine No. 48" or "Hilarion No. 48" are incorrect.
- A so-called "Elbin-Stelle" ("Elbin spot"), mentioned in the German literature (articles by Wendel), belongs to the Hilarion mine.
