The large heap of the Beschert Glück shaft stretches towards the ore vein in northeast-southwest direction and rises towards southwest due to dipping terrain level. Mostly overgrown at present day, the heap has measures of 250 m in length and 100 m in width. In places retaining walls made from rubble stone secure areas of passing roads. The heap is tunneled by a leat which provided motive water for the water engines of the mine and another shaft structure situated in the west. Further, a rubble stone wall as high as the heap has been preserved. It holds two ore pass mouths for loading and transporting ore to the dressing and smelting sites. A staircase leads to the ore bunkers with its openings covered by large gneiss slabs.
