Krásná Hora (Schönberg) is an Au-Sb deposit mined from the 11th century to 1992.

History:
From the 11th to the 15th century: Au placer mining, shallow works up to 20m depth.
16th to 18th century: no noticeable mining activities.
In 1871 the mines were bought and modernized by Emanuel Kittl (father of the most popular Czech opera singer Ema Destinová) from Prague.
In 1873 a specimen of pure antimony was mined for the world exhibition in Vienna; it weighed 700kg!
In 1881 at least 700 miners were working in the mines.
In 1923 mining stopped due to low prices of Sb and Au.
The last period of mining was from 1941 to 1992.

Important pits from the last period of mining were Nová, Marie (location shown in maps), Otto and Milan.
