Eisenlagerstätte, Dürnstein, Neumarkt, Steiermark, Österreich


Ancient iron (siderite) mining area near (below) the ruin of Dürnstein castle. Located about 9 km SSW of Neumarkt.

A former iron mine with 4 adits within a distance of 30 m, 4 to 40 m long. The most interesting is the one in the east at approx. N46.98803 E14.39604.
It is believed that around the year 1000 (Saint Hemma) in this location Ag, Au and Cu was mined on a small scale and was used for the “Friesacher Münze” (Friesacher Pfennig).
