    The age of this pit is also uncertain. It is believed that even the Romans have dug for ore, but there is still no evidence for this. Despite all this, the White Pit is the best explored pit in the Imsbacher district so far, but here, too, Montanhistorical investigations are still going on.
    Presumably, at the beginning of the mining activity, at this point, initially over-biting Kupfererzgänge were mined in the open pit. The veins proved by trenching then led to the creation of two pits, which were named as "Southern Pit" and "Northern Pit". It was worked in four quarrying soles. In later times, the pits were connected with each other and in the last period of operation was also worked here in the open pit. Today, the White Pit is one of the visitor mines located in Imsbach. The heaps fell mostly to the Laugerei victim or were used in later time for road construction.
