from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The list of mines in Wittgenstein includes mines in the Wittgensteiner Land, divided into the municipalities of Bad Berleburg , Bad Laasphe and Erndtebrück .

The extraction of roofing slate around Raumland and Dotzlar has been known since the 16th century. Ore mining in the Wittgensteinerland was of little importance. The silver and lead ore mining of the Gonderbach mine near Hesselbach is worth mentioning .
