Name(s) in local language(s):Kaisererbruch (Deislbruch), Hüttwinkltal, Rauriser Tal, Hohe Tauern, Salzburg, Österreich

The bottom of the Hüttwinkl valley is filled with rocksled material, originating from different places in the Krumlbach and upper Hüttwinkl valleys. These boulders are worked in the Kaiserer (formerly: Deisl) and Lohning quarries. The minerals therefore, originate from a large variety of different parageneses.

Presently (2005), the Kaiserer quarry is only sporadically active, and not much interesting material is found.

NOTE: some (or all?) of the "davidite" and "loveringite" reported from here appears to be cleusonite instead (see also Lohning quarry).
