The mine is entered through the Neufanger Tagesstollen. This is the youngest part of the mine, and was used when most of the old mine was already closed and filled in. Originally this was a neighbouring mine to Grube Samson. But when both were owned by the governmnet, they were united. In the 20th century the Grube Samson was transformed into a show mine, and when the idea arose to create a show mine in this mine two,the first idea was to combine them. However, this is now a second show mine, guided by staff from the Grube Samson.
