The first documentary mentions for slate and ore mining in what was then the county of Sponheim can only be found in the late Middle Ages. In 1949 the mine was closed. By 1948, 50,000 tons of gangue had been recovered. From this, 3,200 tons of lead, 4,200 tons of zinc, 12 tons of copper and 1 ton of silver of metal were made up (melted).
