Quartz vein located close to the km 15.7 marker along State Road 659 (SS 659), between Baceno and Premia, about 1.5 km from Premia.
The vein, exploited for quartz, was worked out in 1961 and originated from a 30-metre-long gallery just below the road.

Minerals can be found in the small dump originated by manual grading of the mined material.
