Stress field perturbation by the topography near the Wilhelminenstollen obtained from geo-mechanical modelling using ABAQUS© on a 19 × 20 × 5 km finite element model. Orientation (black lines) and magnitude (colour signature) of the maximum principal stress component are shown (positive/negative magnitudes: tensile/compressive stress). Black line extension of the Wilhelminenstollen, dashed line possible extension to 2 km length
