Ba-(F-Pb-Zn-As-Ni-Ag) vertical lode (1-2 m thick) in Carboniferous slates, sandstones and quartzites (turbiditic sequence). Old mine galleries at different levels.

Alpine fault (containing mineralized veins) at the contact between Prades Mt massif and the Cenozoic sediments of Ebro and Prelitoral basins.
The Atrevida vein is 4 kilometers long, 8 meters thick and 200 meters deep.
Quartz replaces barite in the deep levels.

In 2006 the town of Vimbodí changed its name to Vimbodí i Poblet.

The famous Atrevida Mine consists of a group of workings that form an important exploitation of baryte located near the top of the peak l'Aliga south of the monastery of Poblet in the municipality of Vimbodí i Poblet.

The first works date possibly in the eighteenth century being in the nineteenth and mid-twentieth its moment of maximum splendor to gradually reduce its production until it closed permanently in 1990.
It should be noted as a historical datum that the Atrevida Mine was the first exploitation of baryte registered in Spain in 1870

The mineralization consists of a powerful subvertical vein with a width of even 6 meters and a length of about 4 km and to depths of 200 meters cutting Paleozoic and Triassic materials associated with late-Triassic distensive faulting.

Three distinct levels in the vein are observed with differences in morphology and in the paragenesis which are placed high to low depth indicating a multi-phasic and complex genesis.
The levels are:

- Lower level: consisting predominantly quartz and fluorite and scarce baryte

- Medium level: formed a breccia of banded baryte with the presence of a complex paragenesis of minerals of Ni-Co-Ag with galena and fluorite which form the cement from the breccia

- Upper level: consisting of banded baryte.

The Atrevida Mine has been a classic site for collectors having provided some very good samples of uncommon species such as hessite and pearceite.
