Ancient Pb-Zn mine, working a deposit of synsedimentary origin in scheelite-bearing rocks of the Habach formation. In the veins, fluorite alternates with sphalerite and other sulphides. The latter however, are also found in quartzite. Another mine on the Flecktrog Alp ('Flecktrogalm'), at a distance of 300 m, was working the same deposit. Most of the minerals reported from these localities were poorly crystallized.
