Schinitzkogel, Kapfenberg, Bruck an der Mur, Steiermark, Österreich


A ancient small Cu mine on the W slope of the Schinitzkogel at N47.431443 E15.295077 , elev. 700m, at the end of the hiking trail named Fischerweg.
The mine consists of one caved-in adit which was re-opened for a short length in 2002.
The collected minerals are from the dump and from the adit and were sent to the Joanneum-Graz for further analysis.
