An old tin and cobalt mine, first documented in 1727 and worked intermittently until 1795. When it was tried again in 1857, a new adit was driven, but the mine had to close in 1858 and the new adit was backfilled again in 1859. When the deposit was prospected between 1956 and 1958, reserves of 59,000 tons of baryte were proven.

The mine worked on the following veins:
- Hoffnung Gottes Morgengang
- Reicher Spat Flacher

They were opened up by the Hoffnung Gottes adit (Hoffnung Gottes Stolln), which formed part of the workings.
