Ancient mining district with many localities.
First mining activities in this area were carried out by Celtic inhabitants.
Silver was extracted first, then Pb-Zn ores, and finally uranium.
The Březové Hory (Birkenberg) subdistrict closed in 1978, the Bohutín one in 1979.
All mining activites stopped in 1991.

A mining museum can be visited in Březové Hory (Birkenberg).

Hakite is enriched in Zn and Cd, and Škácha et al. (2016) report a Zn-dominant hakite-like phase ('Zn-hakite'), and rare Cd-dominant one ('Cd-hakite').
