W,Sn and Mo mines. Best gem blue beryl’s Portuguese occurrence.

The mining complex commonly known as 'Minas dos Carris' is composed by 3 mining concessions:
- 'Salto do Lobo' for W and Mo, opened on 15/03/1947 and closed on 30/11/1992;
- 'Corga das Negras no. 1' also for W, Mo and Sn. Opened on 20/12/1952 and closed on 30/10/1992;
- 'Lamalonga no. 1' only for W, opened on 24/07/1956 and closed on 30/10/1992.

The mining complex is located near the boundaries of Braga District, but all the concessions belong to Vila Real District.
The majority of the mining infrastructures are located at 'Salto do Lobo', except the washery which is located in 'Lamalonga no. 1'.
