In a nutshell:

Bleiberg/Kreuth – mining since the 14th century. The first documented mining of lead ores dates back to 1333.

Mining of ores in tunnels and shafts with a total length of 1,300 kilometres.

In 1785 Franz Xaver Freiher von Wulfen described this yellow lead ore for the first time as “K√§rntner Bleyspath” – later the mineral was named after Wulfen.

Mining was stopped over 30 years ago – new finds therefore impossible!!!
