Name(s) in local language(s): St Michaelis Stolln, Schlettau, Revier Annaberg, Erzgebirge, Sachsen, Deutschland
 
An old tin and silver mine, first documented in 1667 but possibly started earlier. It was worked intermittently until 1737, and reworked from 1780 until 1833. Until 1799, the adit was driven 840 m below Schottenberg hill.

In addition to several unnamed veins, the mine worked on the following named veins:
- Gott hilft gewiß Spat
- Schlettauer Glück Flacher
- Segen Gottes Morgengang (Neuer Segen Gottes Morgengang)
- St Michaelis Morgengang

Note: Not to be confused with the Fürst Michaelis adit.
