A prospection shaft for Wolframite, located south of Siptenfelde village and a few hundred meters north of the Herzog shaft mine, sunken in 1951 to a depth of 64 m with levels at 30 and 60 meters.
The vein goes parallelly to the Biwend vein system in a distance of some hundred meters to the north and is considerably different in the mineralization from it (e.g. no carbonates).

On the agricultural land between the shaft and the road can be also found the vein's material. Inclusively wolframite, arsenopyrite and much quartz.
