This area [which is situated in the municipalities of Borghetto Vara and Pignone, near Faggiona (Pignone)] is certainly known since 1600, when hematite, associated with Mn minerals, was mined by locals to extract iron. The deliberate mining of Mn minerals started in 1790 and ended after WW II.

The Mn minerals are bound to jasper formations of Jurassic age.

Furthermore, some minerals (aragonite, serpentine subgroup minerals, etc.) are not related to the manganese mineralisation, although they occur inside the territory of the former mining concession. In fact, they have been found along the left bank of the Rendarena stream, near the eastern border of the mining concession, in small lenses of serpentinite embedded in sandstones, evidenced by stream erosion (Di Lisi, 2011).
