Old quartz mine. The mine was following a near vertical hydro-thermal vein of quartz embedded in the Baceno Schists (a Mesozoic metamorphosed cover unit). A single short gallery is present about at the river bed (right hydro-graphic side). Provided coordinates are unchecked but not far from the true site (some tens to a hundred of meters as estimated errors)
