Group of Mines located near the hamlet abandoned of El Tesorero, in the ravine Uclías in the heart of the Sierra de Baza.

Developed an intense activity throughout the late nineteenth and early twentieth definitely closing the year 1923.

They exploded a stratiform mineralization developed on the materials of the complex "Nevado-Filabride" essentially of Siderite with alteration to oxides.
Next to this mineralization of Fe, found something copper and bismuth is observed as sulfides and alteration minerals.

Are preserved remains of numerous buildings and installations of these important mines especially of the Hernan Cortes Mine, which counted with six levels of galleries and air transport system for wires over 16 Kilometres long.
