Miniera di Pereta, Pereta, Scansano, Grosseto, Toscana, Italia


An abandoned antimony mine. The type locality for peretaite and the co-type locality for coquandite.

Sb ore is of epithermal origin, hosted into a brecciated and silicized limestone.

Geographical coordinates of Lat. 42°38'35.99"N, Long. 11°21'28.05"E refer to the second (formerly more prospective) open pit, now almost completely filled by vegetation. (From in situ visit, re-checked on satellite images with Google Earth).
