Miniera di ferro di San Leone, Assemini, Città metropolitana di Cagliari, Sardegna, Italia


This iron mine is located in Sulcis area, in an enclave of the Assemini municipality between the municipal territories of Capoterra and Uta, and it can be visited only with owner's permission.
The mine is almost "recent" - the occurrence was discovered in 1860 during the development of industrial age which needed always more and more prime matters and increasing quantities of minerals. In 1892 the mine started its activity, which ended in 1963.

The mineralisation is mainly represented by magnetite ore bodies within skarn generated by the thermometamorphism of earlier Paleozoic limestones at contact with granitic intrusions.

Near this mine, there are some radiometric anomalies due to the presence of some uranium minerals (see other locality named San Leone radioactive anomalies).
