Old pyrite and chalcopyrite mine.

To reach the collecting place, from the little town of Farini in Val Nure, turn left towards Groppallo. Pass town, then turn left to Bruzzetti village and drive about two kilometers to reach a farm, on the right, where it is clearly visible a sign indicating the old mine.
Attention: you are on a private property and you have to ask for permission to go to the dump. Only an adit is accessible, but you should never get into it because it is dangerous.
