Geislingen is a town in the Zollernalbkreis district, in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It is situated 4 km northwest of Balingen. Current population is at around 6,000 people. Geislingen consists of three smaller towns, Geislingen (pop. 4,500), Erlaheim (pop. 500) and Binsdorf (pop. 1,000), all of them growing by about 1% per year. While the area has been constantly settled since the stone age, the first written documentation of Binsdorf dates back to the year 834, Geislingen proper gets a first mention in 1188. The local economy mixes agriculture with services and small-scale industry. Most of Geislingen today has a residential character with many citizens working in the highly industrial areas south of Stuttgart or in nearby Balingen.

Mining[edit]

In former times sand, sandstone,limestone and ironore was produced in Geislingen. [2] The name of the mine in Geislingen was Goldhöhle.[3] In Erlaheim near Mildersbach Schwefelkies. [4] In Binsdorf a natural stone industry consists of extraction operations of natural stone (quarries) for civil engineering, sandstone (Keupersandstein), sandstone(Stubensandstein) and limestone (Liaskalk) .[5] From an old 3,5 km mine in a Doggererzflöz in Weilheim is wood in the Tuttlinger Fruchtkasten .[6] The mine in Geislingen is collapsed. Steel was produced in Tuttlingen by the Schwäbische Hüttenwerke in Ludwigshal. The ofen in Harras was closed in 1832.[7] The long tranport with horses caused only limited equivalent income of pyrite mining in Erlaheim. By building railways new calculations make the ironore of the area unprofitable.[8] [9] Near Geislingen was broken a black stone for the Operation Desert (German fuel project) at the road to Erzingen .[10] [11]
