Wolframite mine, worked in the 1940s and 1950s. The works are located at 8.5 km at E of Belalcázar.
The municipal territory of Belalcázar is situated in the northwest corner of the Los Pedroches region, in the Córdoba province. About half of its territory is occupied by the «Batolito de los Pedroches» an outcrop of igneous rocks that stretches along about 200 km towards NW-SE, from Don Benito in the province of Badajoz, continuing on the Cordoba, to Arquillos in the province of Jaen. The batholith is between 8 and 30 km wide. The main body, composed mainly by granodiorite, is accompanied by others independent bodies, several of which are located immediately to the N, aligned in the indicated direction. One of them is the «Santa Eufemia pluton», located about 3 km W of this town, embedded in shale and grawackes of the Culm facies, of age Viseense - Namuriense (Lower Carboniferous). It has the shape of an ellipse with the major axis of about 12 km in length, with a E-W direction. The small, about 6 km in lenght, has a N-S direction and consists mainly of porphyritic monzogranites with potassium feldspar megacrystals up to 5cm, with some leucogranite masses and dikes. Both types of rock contain cordierite, alterated to pinnite (Casco Garcia et al., 1989). In the periphery of pluton, embedded in granite but sometimes also on the shales of the area of contact metamorphism, around ten mineralizations with wolframite and iron arsenides (arsenopyrite and löllingite) can be found in quartz veins. The principal subject of this article is the Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine, also known as Alcantarilla mine, Ventosilla mine or Encinilla Baja mine. Dicks and veins in the area. NE 30º veins are related to Pb mineralizations, N-S veins to Cu. The wolfram bearing veins run 120º NE where the Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine is located. Situation maps of the Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine. Cat Minerals, no.1, oct 16' 11 It is probably the most important mine, and it is located at the eastern end of the pluton, in the area where the largest mass of leucograniteis, approximately 1.8 km NNW of Cortijo de Cogolla Alta (or Cogollarta), 1.4 km W of Casa de la Encinilla Baja and 8.5 km E of Belalcazar in this municipality. Its geographical coordinates are 38°34’14.98 N and 5°3’40.32 W. Wolframite, arsenides, and the main objective of this work, the secondary minerals formed by their alteration, appears in three lode systems, with directions N 40 W, N 70 W and N 25 E. The first two are the most important (Rechenberg, 1954). They are between 5 cm and 30 cm thick, and are subvertical or dipping between 90 and 70° to SW (Casco Garcia et al., 1988). The host rock underwent some alteration processes during deposition of mineralization, leading to sometimes produce moscovitizaciones and greisen type mineralizations (Casco García et al., 1988). The primary mineralization, both wolframite (with a predominance of ferberita term) as arsenides, are forming «nests» within the quartz. Entrance to one of very few short underground workings. Main dump in January 2015. The Alcantarilla Mine. 12 Cat Minerals, no.1, oct 16' HISTORY According to the Belalcázar oral history, the discovery of tungsten ores in the area was accidental, when a heavy black stone caught the eye of a hunter. After their identification as wolframite, a man called Moises Gonzalez requested the mining concession «Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas». In the early 1950s, due to the Korean War, prices of tungsten increased sharply, fivefold when compared to previous reference values, quite low, resulting from the end of the Second World War. They even surpassed in 1952 the 120 pesetas/kg, but they quickly fell afterwards. In 1950 a German company began working the mine. In the Cañada de Marimiguel, the company opened a pit and built a warehouse, mineral washing facilities and barracks and canteen for workers. Rechenberg (1954), who visited the mine in 1952, indicates that about 15 quartz veins between 40 cm and 1 meter thick were being worked. Much of the exploitations were carried out by workers from Belalcázar, by the system of «sacagéneros». Workers received the tools from the company, and could use their mechanical washing systems, or do it manually in the nearby river. Then the company bought them the clean mineral obtained. At that time the basic salary of a miner in Vizcaya was 17 pesetas per day, which could be up to 25 or 30 pesetas with bonuses for production. A bonanza zone (very rare occurrence), even if the purchase price for the company was far from the value of the ore, could give a worker in one day the equivalent to the normal salary of several weeks. According to rough estimates, during the years of exploitation, the mine produced about 30 tons of ore, which were exported through the port of Vigo. The mining activities lasted only a few years, the ones with high ore prices, and it was never again retaken. As the mine was within the area that was reserved for the Spanish State in the vicinity of the Almaden mines, in the early 1980s, the state company «Minas de Almaden y Arrayanes» conducted a detailed research work (Casco García et al., 1988), concluding that it was not exploitable from an economic point of view. Cat Minerals, no.1, oct 16' 13 Native sulphur / Selenian sulphur S / S-Se Native sulphur was found in the Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine as a product of intense oxidation of arsenopyrite. It occurs in highly lustrous, translucent and well-developed microcrystals up to 0.5 mm in vugs or on fissures of arsenopyrite. The color ranges from white to pale yellow. EDS analysis of some bright yellow individual microcrystals on crystallized scorodite turned out to be selenium-bearing sulphur. Its selenium content varied between 1.2 and 2.5 wt %. Native bismuth Bi Native bismuth occurs as grains up to 8 mm in quartz veins. It shows a silver white color with pinkish tint with metallic luster and is sometimes tarnished iridescent. Native bismuth is rather common at the deposit. The main mineral extracted was wolframite (ferberite). Given the method of payment and the price of the mineral , workers cleaned up to the last grain of visible mineral, so it is currently very difficult to find it in the dumps. However, from the scientific point of view, the most important minerals are the produced by weathering of the sulphides, mainly löllingite. During this study karibibite and other rare secondary minerals have been found, including seven new to Spain.
