Copper mineralization related to a small skarn, located near the cemetery.
It was operated at the beginning of the twentieth century and was partly covered by the construction of a school.

In the entire area between the cemetery of San Gervasi and the road named as "Carretera de les Aigües" occur outcrops of contact metamorphic rocks.

This site belongs to the city of Barcelona.
The area is a nature park, the sampling of minerals is prohibited.
