Königliche Friedrichsgrube Bleiwasche


Washing mud (Bleiwasche) of the Friedrich Royal Mine (Königliche Friedrichsgrube). The origins of the heap date back to 1830-1840. It arose from the accumulation of waste gangue, which were local dolomites rich in lead, silver and zinc ores. The dump rises 17 meters above the ground and is the largest in this area. Due to its color, the local population calls it the Red Mountain.
