Ancient lead, arsenic or silver/gold(?) mine, of which a number of dumps and three abandoned adits remain. There are also some outcrops of arsenopyrite-pyrite-(sphalerite)-bearing quartz veins, both natural and along a forest road. Quartz boulders with metatorbernite or anatase and monazite-(Ce) have also been found in the area.
Located about 5 km south of Krieglach on the eastern slope of Teschengraben at N47.50155 E15.57232 elev. approx. 1100 m asl.

|Paleozoic intrusive and metamorphic terranes|
Age: Paleozoic (252.17 - 541 Ma)
Comments: Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.
Lithology: Intrusive and metamorphic terranes
