Minerals (adularia, quartz, sphalerite, etc.) in hydrothermalite boulders in a landslide along the road towards the village of Casale.

To reach the collecting site drive to Bobbio, then continue to Marsaglia and turn left in Aveto Valley. After a few kilometers and before the village of Salsominore, turn left towards Casale and Brugneto.
The landslide in which minerals are found is located one kilometers before the village of Casale. The landslide is crossed by the Riccadassa stream.
