Mitsui mining exploited several orebodies, including the Tochibora ore body, Urushiyama ore body and Maruyama ore body, in skarns. Was at one time the largest zinc mine in East Asia and the most efficient zinc mine in the world. The Kamioka mine is the largest Zn-Pb-Ag mine in Japan and has a production history of about 1,100 years. The ore reserves, are about 100 million tons, including mined ores of 65 million tons that have an average grade of 0.82% Pb, 5.2% Zn and 33g/t Ag. Closed in 2001 or 2002, since which time the mine has been used by Tokyo University for an underground neutrino observatory. No entry for collectors.

Note that some portions of the Kamioka mine are across the prefectural border in Toyama.
