Copper slate pit Long Wall

The “Long Wall” in Ilfeld shows you a geological window on which the million-year-old history of the South Harz can be impressively read. The show mine “Lange Wand” offers you probably the best insight into the geology and extraction technique of the copper slate in the south resin.

From volcanic rocks to alabasters, with disturbances, faults and displacements up to double ore layers, you will get an insight into the geology of the South Harz region.
The geological window in the slope of the “Long Wall” is a world-famous special feature.
