An old silver mine, earlier known as Silberne Harnischkammer Mine or as Rachewitz Mine. It was first worked from 1527 until 1588. When it was reworked between 1724 and 1799, it also raised cobalt and nickel ores. In 1825, it was included with the Markus Röhling sett and restarted as Krönung Mine. When the former was closed in 1858, it continued operations at a small scale. In 1867, it was consolidated with the Himmelfahrt Mine at Buchholz. In 1879, it was finally abandoned.

The mine worked on the following veins:
- Augustus Spat
- Bäuerin Stehender
- Julius Stehender
- Krönung Flacher (Cröninger Flacher)
- Lommers Hoffnung Flacher
