Abandoned arsenic mine (arsenopyrite-pyrite-chalcopyrite-pyrrhotite mineralisations with minor gold).
Famous for excellent gustavite crystals collected underground.

In 2007 prospecting and exploration work was done by ORD Resources GmbH. From 2012-2017 similar work was done by Noricum Gold Limited.
