This mine (that is the union of previous Tiny Mine and Arenas Mine) is located in Sardinia, Oridda area, at a height of around 600 m above sea level in the municipalities of Domusnovas and Fluminimaggiore. It was a Pb-Zn-Ba and F mine. Its organized activity started around 1848, and it belonged to British mining companies. In 1901 it was sold to an Italian company which started the open pit extraction. The mine activity, after a little stop during the end of WW II, lasted up to the early 1970s, then it started to decline and in 1981 activity was suspended. In 1984 it was completely abandoned and now (2006) the entire deposit is a reclaimed land.
