Ore extraction has now stopped at this lead-zinc-silver-cadmium mine, but it has become a mining-related amusement park. Epithermal veins; largest was 7 m wide, worked over a strike of 2 km, to a depth of 250 m. Mitsubishi still operates a smelter here. (1958 production: 11 tons Ag; ref.: Mining Annual Review (1985): 407).
One of the largest lead and zinc mines in Japan; closed in 1987.
