The mining in the Väster Silfberg (Silvberg) district probably started in the 13th century. The last mine to close was Gårdmyra mine in 1982.
The elongated area stretches over 10 km with Schisshyttan in the north and Silvhyttan in the southeast. It includes skarn Fe-Mn, pyrrhotite, complex sulphides and earthy ores.
It's divided in 3 separate orefields: Svartberg orefield (Svartbergsfältet), Dammberg Mines (Dammbergsfälten) and Stollberg orefield (Stollbergsfälten).

The minerals described in Weibull (1883) are from the Slädboberg Mine.
