The most important Pb-Zn mine of the Kirki mines, located 9 km NE of Kirki village.
Two groups of NNW veins in Eocene sandstones and pelites, with intrusions of dacite, rhyodacites and granodiorites.
Low-T / high-fS2 mineralisation.

Occasionally mined during 1973-1998 (Skarpelis & Triantafyllidis, 2004). An acid lake in the pit contains high concentrations of metals.

Located north of the genetically related Pagoni Rachi prospect.
A lead-zinc mine closed in 1945.
