The name "Mineral Cabinet" was chosen to refer, at least externally, to the first mineral collection in Braunschweig, which was already shown to the public in 1754 in the ducal cabinet of art and naturalities.

The Lengede-Broistedt iron ore mine belonged to the Ilseder Hütte and was located in the Lower Saxon municipality of Lengede on the Brunswick-Hildesheim railway line. The mine became known to the general public in the Lengede mine disaster, a mining disaster that occurred on 24 October 1963 in the Lengede-Broistedt iron ore mine in the Mathilde shaft. The event has also become known as the "Miracle of Lengede" because of the rescue of eleven buried miners. In the last years of operation until its closure on 30 December 1977, the mine was considered to be the most modern ore mine in Europe.
