A closed mine with Cu-Pb-Zn veins, famous to Japanese collectors for its purplish pyromorphite crusts on amethystine quartz crystals (the color association being presumably just coincidence!). 1958 Cu production 2,644 tons from ore averaging 1.5% Cu.

Historical summary:
- In 1772, Au ore was found in Kanahira area.
- In 1884, Otani vein was found.
- In 1908, owner changed. New outcrop was found in Shirayama Area.
- In 1932, owned by Nippon Mining Industry Co., Ltd.
- In 1962, mining company was separated to Hokuriku Mine Co., Ltd.
- In 1971, closed.

Now, Hokuriku Mine Co., Ltd. is remain as environmental conservation company for prevention of water pollution from slag heaps.
