The Knappschaftsteich Miners’ Association Reservoir was created in 1684 and is directly adjacent to the Siebenschlehener Pochwerk stamp mill. The water from this reservoir powered another stamp mill situated below the Siebenschlehen stamp mill. The reservoir has a loam-sealed earth dam, a terraced wall, a sluice control hut, and a spillway. Its construction is similar to the Lindenau stamp mill reservoir, which was also part of the Siebenschlehen stamp mill. The mine obtained process water for the stamp mill and washing works from the 600-metre ditch leading from the Lindenauer Teich Reservoir to the stamp mill.
