Ancient copper and silver mine, working a copper-bearing vein that was discovered in 1908 during the construction of a railway line near Antweiler. The mine, first privately owned, then taken over by the 'Antweiler Erz-Gesellschaft' and, later, by the 'Stolberger Blei und Zink AG' started its work around 1910 and was abandoned in 1926. The silver was extracted from tetrahedrite occurring in a cross-course.
