Small, ancient copper mine with three short adits (Alfred, Albert and Hermann adit) and dumps, working fahlore mineralizations in dolomite brecciae at the end of the 19th century.

Located about 3 km SSE of Mixnitz at an elevation of ca. 660 m asl.

The mine was operated by a French company in the 1880s, but economically it was no success and it was closed before WWI.

The dumps are overgrown but with some perseverance good specimen can still be found here around N47.304001 E15.38281.
