Historical mining group date from middle XIX (1852) worked to obtain lead-antimony-zinc ores inside large iron masses. Tha adits are both sides Los Sauces stream, close to the Monastery Nuestra Señora de las Nieves.The adits have shielded interesting specimens of vanadinite, cerussite, and descloizite in vuggy iron formations; also bearing antimony galene partially replaced by cerussite. Most minerales to interest of collectors are secondary as partially replaced of galene,sphalerite and stibnite.

Iron and lead-antimony masses are inside dolomites and brecciated dolomites belonging to Sierra de las Nieves Unit, Triassic age. The deposit has a interesting formation regarding geological conditions as karst and sediments in conjunction with primary ores were reworked by tectonic settings (low angle faults)during alpine orogeny.
