Trenches, adits and relevant dumps on the south slope of Punta Santa Vittoria, to the NE of Genna Movexi pass. Other minor veins have been prospected at a lower elevation, towards Canale Sa Menga.

The main mineralisation consists of the so-called Santa Vittoria vein, an arsenopyrite-bearing vein whose strike length extends from Genna Movexi to Cuccuru Mairu (Gonnosfanadiga municipality). On the south slope of Punta Santa Vittoria it is intersected by a small E-W trending vein containing a galena-stibnite mineralisation with sporadic nodules of nickeline.
