Just east of Kloben summit, at an elevation of roughly 2900 m above sea level, a system of gold-bearing quartz veins disseminates phyllites and micaschists. Since the veins were worked both from the northern (Salzburgian) and the southern (Carinthian) side of the mountain, the minerals are listed for both countries.
