The Arcu su Linnarbu deposit is located near Capoterra, in Sulcis, to the south of Monte Arcosu, in the neighborhood of the ancient San Leone iron mine with the nearby San Leone radioactive anomalies (separate localities in an enclave of the Assemini municipality within the municipal territory of Capoterra).

This deposit is poor in primary U minerals but the secondary ones are very abundant.
Arcu su Linnarbu area is one of the few Italian localities where it is possible to collect well-formed crystals of radioactive species, some of which are very rare.

In 1956 SOMIREN, a society of ENI group, executed prospecting works for radioactive minerals also in Sardinia. The works carried out at Arcu su Linnarbu showed the industrial irrelevance of this U deposit and so any operation ceased. In 1980-1982 a new field campaign carried out by AGIP Nucleare S.p.A., jointly with Ente Minerario Sardo, confirmed the conclusions of the previous prospects.

The geology of this area is dominated by the presence of the Mt. Arcosu granitic mass, the intrusion of which generated the usual thermometamorphic ring around the same. The earlier Cambrian schists, also transformed into magnetite skarns, appear deeply silicified. The uranium minerals have been found in a siliceous breccia located at the contact between granitic mass and schists. It is also deeply permeated by Fe oxides.
