The Trapero mine is one of a number of uranium mineralizations worked in the latter half of the twentieth century. Uranium ore is found as fissure filling in fractures of a vein of quartz and jasper, with subvertical dip, and a maximum thickness of 3 metres. Today, the mine is closed and restored.

La mina Trapero pertenece a un conjunto de mineralizaciones de uranio que estuvieron en explotación durante la segunda mitad del siglo XX. Los minerales de uranio se presentan como relleno fisural en las fracturas de un filón de cuarzo y jaspe, de buzamiento subvertical y con una potencia media de 2 a 3 metros. Actualmente la mina está clausurada y restaurada.
