Miniera di San Giovanni, Punta della Torre, Iglesias, Carbonia-Iglesias, Sardegna, Italia


Another important Pb-Zn-Ba mine of Iglesiente in the so-called "Iglesiente metalliferous ring". In this area, most of the mineralizations probably have in common a primary origin connected to sedimentary Cambrian carbonatic limestones. These primary sedimentary mineralizations were remobilized and re-arranged because of later tectonic phenomena.
The mine is located partly in the municipality of Gonnesa.

In 1952, the excavation works for a shaft evidenced a large elliptical cavity, named Santa Barbara Cave (Grotta di Santa Barbara), with the walls completely lined with baryte (brown tabular crystals), aragonite, and calcite.
