Abandoned polymetallic ore deposit mined for Ag, Pb.

The first mine Johann in der Wüste (Jan na poušti) was founded in 1550 after discovery of silver bearing vein under the roots of uprooted fir tree (depicted in Vejprty coat-of-arms). After 30 years war stagnation was minig booming again from 1688 to 1751 (in 1713 were active 10 mines in Vejprty). The last mining era in Vejprty was in the first third of 19th century, but all mining activities were stopped in 1845 due to low rentability.

Located directly on the border to Germany (Bärenstein).

There is a number of locallities around Vejprty town: several mines in Nové Zvolání (Neues Geschrei), Antonín adit (both Co-Ni-Bi-As-Ag + F-Ba), MariaHilf Blei zeche (Pb-Zn-Ag), arsenic mine Jedová jáma (Giftschacht) and a rutile occurence.
