The Grüner Seifen placer deposits are one of the most characteristic types of scenery found in the mining landscape. The 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-like hills mark the original ground level. It is likely that most of the hollows first developed in the period after 1558, when water from the Grüner Graben ditch was being used. This is indicated by the numerous remains of ditches in the area surrounding the Grüner Seifen.
