A pyrite mine owned by Solmine. Closed before 1984.

Niccioleta mines are very famous mostly for pyrite great crystals, but there are other great crystalized minerals which came out of that mine, such as gypsum and sulphur too. The minerals can be found in two distinct enviromental occurrences: a group related (and in association) with the main ore minerals , and another group in the skarn occcurrence.

At first group can be listed: Ankerite, Arsenopyrite, Azurite, Boulangerite, Calcite, Celestine, Cerussite, Chalcopyrite, Copiapite, Cotunnite, Dolomite, Enargite, Epsomite, Fibroferrite, Fluorite, Galena, Goethite, Goslarite, Gypsum, Halotrichite, Hematite, Jamesonite, Magnetite, Malachite, Marcasite, Melanterite, Orpiment, Pickeringite, Pyrite, Quartz, Realgar, Semseyite, Siderite, Sphalerite, Stibnite, Sulphur, Tetrahedrite

At the second group (skarn related minerals) can be listed:
Bornite, Chalcopyrite, Pyrrhotite, Pyrite, Bismuthinite, Fluorite, Magnetite, Hematite, Quartz,Siderite, Dolomite, Anhydrite, Erythrite, Andradite, Ivaite, Hedembergite, Epidote, Chlorite, Adular
