This mine was already active in the 18th century, but early outputs are not recorded. From 1872 to 1889, it produced 3,280 tons of black tin, 5 tons of 4% copper ore, 7 tons of pyrite and 12 tons of arsenopyrite. From 1911 until its closure in 1918, it produced cassiterite and mixed tin and tungsten concentrates.
