Steirischer Erzberg, Eisenerz, Steiermark, Österreich


Operating open-pit siderite mine.

Ore production in 2001: ca. 1.6 Mt.

Total ore production up to 2001: 235 Mt.
The mine will be closed between 2015 and 2020, see http://www.vaerzberg.at (in German).

The ore consists of a mixture of siderite and minor ankerite and Fe-bearing dolomite. The deposit is considered to be the biggest siderite deposit in the world. Mining started sometime during the period between 800 AC and the 12th century.
