The collecting site can be reached from the town of Ferriere, continuing in the direction of Solaro. Once you have passed this village, continue for about two kilometers and stop near a country road, visible on the right of the main road, closed with an iron bar. Then, walk along this road and reach the dump of the old magnetite mine, which is approximately 15 minutes' walk from the iron bar.
The entrance of the mine is now nowhere to be found, it is assumed that it is collapsed and covered with debris.
