Gsollerkogel, Rein, Graz, Steiermark, Österreich


Small trial for manganese ores, probably around 1880-1890. Located SW of Gsollerkogel.

The mineralization is hosted within dolomites of the Devonian "Flösserkogel-formation" of the Graz Palaeozoic. It consist only of oxidic Mn-minerals and is most probably connected to carstic features and wheatering during the Miocene. Total "reserves" may not have exceeded one metric ton...
