Ancient talc mine, explored by a single adit started in 1934. This adit cuts through rocks at the periphery of a serpentinite body (listvenite, talc-chlorite schists and actinolite schists) contacting aplite and aplitic granite. The minerals occur included in the schists, as well as in miarolitic cavities in the aplitic rocks. Some of them are known since 1853 when a now overgrown quarry was worked nearby. Located SW of Schellgaden.
