Worked from 1952 until 1969, with a total output of 320,000 tons of fluorite. Located about 2 km WNW of Krupka. In 1972 new work started - research on tin and W ore. The adits reached a length of 2 km.
After about 1 km was discovered a new big quartz vein, which was rich in molybdenite.
Today, the adits are inaccessible, and the dumps overgrown by grass and trees.
