An old silver mine, started in 1839 and abandoned in 1842. It worked the Silberhoffnung Flacher vein and several unnamed veins from a 16th century adit, variously known as Cunzel Singer adit or Cunzel Stenger adit, which was started before 1532. During the 18th and 19th century, the dump and the old workings were referred to by local people as "Graue Halde" and "Silberkammer", respectively.
