Cu-Ag-Au deposit hosted in Grezzoni fm. of the S.Anna tectonic window. The mineralization is represented by quartz-baryte-fluorite veins with tetrahedrite disseminations. Tetrahedrite is rich in Hg and Au (up to 48 g/ton, according to old authors). This locality is famous for the big crystals of geocronite found in the XIX century (even if probably these crystals came from the nearby Pollone mine).
