Magnetite skarn deposit located 7 km SW of Kutná Hora on the right bank of Vrchlice stream just under the large dam on the stream.
The iron mines are first mentioned in 1719. The last era of mining activity was from 1950 to 1957. The magnetite skarn is penetrated by pegmatite veins. The underground of the mine was accessible until recently, the old overgrown dumps are currently the only place with some chance for collecting local minerals.
31 valid minerals.
