Hopffeldgraben (Hopffeldklamm), Hopffeldgebiet, Obersulzbachtal, Hohe Tauern, Salzburg, Österreich


A steep rift west of the Hopffeldboden (separate locality), leading up to the Hopffeld. The minerals reported from this area, among them excellent kainosites, were found in clefts in gneisses. Traces of scheelite occur in screes, which probably originate from the Hopffeld.
