Name(s) in local language(s):Bispbergs Järngruva; Storgruvan

The Bispberg Fe mines are located W of the hill Bispbergs Klack. A number of orebodies has been mined in and around Bispberg. Storgruvan (The Big Mine) was by far the largest and richest.
In some literature the Bispberg Fe mine is erronously designated as the TL of Scheelite. The heavy mineral ("tungsten" in swedish) that later was named Scheelite was found in 1751 in a Cu prospect on the hill of Bispbergs Klack These are (after Hisinger 1826) some of the known mines: Storgruvan, Gräsgruvan, Furubergsgruvan.
