Abandoned uranium mine (research phases 1959-1963 and new researches in 1970-1973). The workings consist of main entrance, galleries at four levels and big dumps.
As usual in the northern uranium mines, also this deposit is hosted by Paleozoic rocks (in this case metamorphic rocks which were originally rhyolitic tuffs).
