Layer- to lens-shaped (up to 40 cm in width), E-W striking copper ore mineralisations (mainly chalcopyrite) in micaschists in the orographically right, lower part of the Rells valley, at an altitude between 700 and 1000 m. Prospecting work was done in the 1920s (4 adits), but no ore was mined.

Note on the mineral list: Exel (1982) also mentions unspecified antimony ores.
