Note about this locality name:
This mine is called Rebentao mine in the famous book of Cotelo Neiva but among collectors it is largely known as "Lagares do Estanho mines" wich are in fact, two other mines situated closely to this one.
The pegmatite lies for the greater part in granite, but its northern and southern end penetrate into the Paleozoic country rock of the granite.
The middle of the vein is the thickest, up to 12 meter in widht and 1 km in length. The pegmatite was worked over 180 m in underground exploitation.
Recently the entire mine was fenced all around, a building was made and facility access create for visit purpose. I heard about a possible restaurant!
Felmica seems to be the last compagny to work here but not for the cassiterite and tungsten.
