Mineralizations in finely crystallized marbles. Since the tunnel is located on the border between Salzburg and Carinthia, specimens can be labelled as coming either from Salzburg or from Carinthia. The minerals listed here are only those reported from the Carinthian side. Located NW of Rennweg.
Note on the cleusonite reported from the tunnel: it is unknown if the sample has been found on the Carinthian or on the Salzburg side of the tunnel.

The tunnel, about 6 km long, was originally built as a single tube only (opened in 1974). A second tube was built between 2005 and 2006 and officially opened in 2009.

Coordinates are approximately those of the southern end of the tunnel.
