The Grüner Seifen placer deposits are amongst the most characteristic scenery in the mining landscape. Excavations reached a depth of more than ten metres. Following three main routes, the resulting ravine-like gullies stretch towards the east. The remaining heap-shaped hills mark the original level of the ground. It is likely that most of the hollows first developed after 1558, when water from the Grüner Graben ditch was being used. This is indicated by the numerous remains of ditches in the area around the Grüner Seifen deposits.
