Name(s) in local language(s): Kupfergrube, Balzenbach, Hemsbach, Odenwald, Baden-Württemberg, Deutschland
 
An old copper mine, which worked a copper-bearing baryte vein from an open cut on the summit of Hinkelstein mountain, northwest of Balzenbach. The workings are backfilled and the dumps have been landscaped.

The deposit consists of a single vein that is hosted in granodiorite and forms a ridge along the summit of the mountain. The structure of the vein, in which baryte alternates with layers of iron and manganese oxides, can still be studied in a protected outcrop. Collecting here is strictly prohibited.
