The Caroline Mine is located between the river Bode and the street triangle Thale - Treseburg - Wienrode. Half the way from the road to the Bode river are some adits and dumps. The mine was working on a quartz vein containing pyrite, pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite and fluorite. A skarn with galena and sphalerite is located in direct neighbourhood of the vein. The vein itself is influenced by tectonic and metamorphic processes. Strange deformed quartz crystals are characteristic for this location. Dark chlorite minerals and pale yellowish feldspar in the veins material are more than usual for this area.
