A small temporary quarry was started in 2012 about 1.3 km NNE of Kottaun, at a forestry road. Exposed were regional metamorphic, skarn-like rocks, mainly garnetite (andradite) plus magnetite and hedenbergite. The mineralisation is similar to that of the nearby Arzberg locality.
Now (spring 2013) the quarry is already filled in again; only about 1,5 m of the quarry wall are accessible, although various large and small boulders are still present.
24 valid minerals.
This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.
