Das Águas underground mining works

Serra dos Monges No. 1 Mine, Santiago do Escoural, Montemor-o-Novo, Évora, Portugal

Checking the general working plant of this mine, surveyed by the "Serviço de Fomento Mineiro", it can be observed that the mineral deposit was composed by a series of lenticular masses oriented to the NW. These masses could be either connected or separated from each other. The old mining concessionaires, based in the aggregation of these same masses, divided the iron ore minining into several works. Thus, following NW-SE direction one will find:
Trabalhos de S Jorge; Trabalhos da Ermida; SE of the first works: Trabalhos de D. Maria; Trabalhos do “Filão Street”; Trabalhos da Pirâmide; located NE of the previous ones: Trabalhos do “Filão Barbosa” and Trabalhos das Águas.

Magnetic survey

Nogueirinha Mine, Santiago do Escoural, Montemor-o-Novo, Évora, Portugal

The objective of magnetic surveys of this kind is to investigate the sub-surface geology based on the anomalies of the Earth's magnetic field caused by the magnetic properties of the subsoil materials. Although most minerals do not have this property, some types of rocks contain enough magnetic minerals to produce significant magnetic anomalies.
