Sn mine (adit).
Mining concession no. 3289 registered on 22-10-1960.

Notes:
- Vale de Figueiras is a local name.
- The rose quartz of Covelinhas mine is in fact from the northern pegmatites. The confusion is due to the proximity of an ancient silicon carbide factory with important amounts of quartz from a lot of different localities.
