Open-pit talc mine of the Naintsch Mineralwerke GmbH (part of Luzenac Co.) on Rabenwaldkogel mountain. The whole area around this mine was exploited in various open pits and adits ('Tagbau Krughof', 'Tagbau Wiedenhofer'), see Taucher & Hollerer (2001).
Largest talc mine in Europe.

Located on Rabenwaldkogel Mt. (1.280 m), about 5 km ENE of Anger, NE of Weiz.
