Ancient copper mines which were first started in the 13th century. The mines were dormant in the 18th century, then briefly active again from 1853-1869.

Located in the Larzenbachgraben, 3 km north of Hüttau and about 12 km NW of Radstadt.

Now a tourist mine since 1997; Mrazek (1995) describes minerals found during reopening of the Georg adit ('Georgstollen'). A small museum ("Erze - Gold und Minerale") in Hüttau can also be visited.
