Description

The show mine is located in the Danielstollen (Daniel adit) and is accessible through the Barbarastollen (Barbara adit). The exhibition explains historic methods of mining and the geology of the deposit.

The ore of Leogang is a so called poly-metallic ore, which contained silver, mercury, copper, lead, nickel, and cobalt in changing proportions. But Leogang is famous for numerous rare and beautiful minerals which were found in the mine. They are sold on mineral fairs an at the mine.

A part of the exhibition is the nearby Knappenstube "Unterberghaus". This former mining building is now used for the tickest office, a restaurant, a souvenir shop and a small exihibition with maps of the mine.
