Mining for Cu at 19th century.
Near the Roc del Boc in the high valley of Prats-Balaguer.
Louis Companyo mentions at 19th century a copper mine at the "Roc del Bug".
In fact the mine is closer from other mountains such as the Coma d'Infern peak and the Pic Rodó than the Roc del Boc.
The mine is situated at 2290 m. close to l'Estanyol lake on the Cami de Núria just over the Riberola upper river.
