Slag dumps of a zinc smelter.
The site is now (2010) completely recultivated.

Note on the mineral list: Many minerals CANNOT be confirmed yet because they were published without proper (XRD/EDS etc.) analyses (Nautilus 2003-03). Please don't change to status "confirmed" without mentioning the method of analysis and any article(s) used.
