Schächtenstein – the deepest stope
The deepest iron ore stope in the Ralsko Geopark.
What will you see? The deepest iron ore stope in the area, iron coatings on the stope walls, a beautiful view of Široký kámen (Wide Stone) ... The inconspicuous Schächtenstein hill hides the largest iron ore stope in the Ralsko Geopark in its peak part. The local stope was based on a polzenite vein (the same vein that was mined at Děvín). Currently, the stope is 75 metres long, reaching a depth of 17 metres. The iron ore mined here was processed in the nearby blast furnaces and mills.
