An old mining area, where silver was extracted from the rich oxidation zone during the 7th to 11th centuries. In 1925, when the deposit was re-discovered, the waste piles of the ancient mines still contained abundant silver minerals. Exploration was started in the 1960s; until the 1970s both oxidized and primary sulphide ores were periodically mined. The total silver production is estimated at about 300,000 kg.
