Historical mine of the Hiendelaencina mining district.
They attempt explode again in the 80s, installing a headframe and getting access to the 6th floor (210 meters) for exploration, the cost of pumping groundwater and the falling price of silver ended the brave attempt.
The paragenesis of the mine is very similar to other mines highlighting the presence of Sphalerite
