Ancient lead-zinc mines, working irregularly distributed, vein- and lens-like, unmetamorphosed fluorite-galena-sphalerite mineralizations (rarely also fahlore) in dolomitized Triassic limestones of the Wetterstein formation.
Several adits, e.g., Viktor adit (Viktorstollen) and Friedrich adit (Friedrichstollen).

Fluorite crystals (colourless or violet) are mined by collectors.

Mining apparently already started during Roman times, later followed by activities in the 14th century until the early 17th century. An old adit was re-opened in the early 19th century but soon abandoned. No activity since 1920.

Located on Kühberg mountain near Obernberg.
