Name(s) in local language(s): Mina La Martorellense (Serra de L'Ataix), Castellví de Rosanes, Baix Llogregat, Barcelona, Catalunya, España
 
Important lead mine, located in the municipality of Castellví of Rosanes, but very close to Martorell from where you can access it even with a gallery within the municipality (Eusebio Mine).
It consists of a deep vertical shaft that exploited two strong veins embedded in Ordovician shales.

The main ore was galena, remaining inside the mine as spectacular masses more than 40 centimeters in thickness (personally seen in the 1970s).
