Magnesite deposit in carbonatites intercalating slates, owned by the "Österreichisch-Amerikanische Magnesit AG". At greater depth, rich scheelite mineralizations in graphite-bearing clay schists were discovered, which were mined from 1957 until the deposit was depleted in 1971. In 1976, the magnesite mine was abandoned as well.

Note: The settlement of Lanersbach was renamed Tux in January 2005.
