Small lead mine located on the Las Norias ravine (or Los Gallardos ravine), on the track from the road Bédar to Los Gallardos to the urbanization of Pinar de Bédar, in the municipality of Bédar. Although there are remains of older works, which may correspond to the eighteenth century, the main exploitation work was carried out by the "Compañía de Águilas" in the nineteenth century. Galena and various secondary minerals are found, including the rare association of strontianite and hemimorphite microcrystals.

Pequeña mina de plomo situada sobre la ramblade Las Norias (o de Los Gallardos), en el camino desde la carretera de Bédar a Los Gallardos a la urbanización de Pinar de Bédar, en el municipio de Bédar. Aunque existen restos de labores más antiguas, que pueden corresponder incluso al siglo XVIII, las principales labores de explotación fueron llevadas a cabo por la “Compañía de Águilas” en el siglo XIX. Se encuentra galena y diversos minerales secundarios, incluyendo la asociación, poco frecuente, de microcristales de estroncianita y de hemimorfita
