Outcrops of gold-bearing quartz veins, hosted by granite-gneisses and metavolcanic rocks on the east and southeast slopes of the Alteck. In the past, the veins were worked by several mines, of which some abandoned adits remain. More such veins are situated further southeast, north of the Hochwurten reservoir. Gold has also been found in mineralized clefts just east of the reservoir.
The coordinates are centered on the slope, about halfway between Alteck summit and the northern end of the Hochwurten reservoir.
