Mines d´Osor, Osor, La Selva, Girona (Gerona), Catalunya (Cataluña), España.


F-Ba-Pb-Zn hydrothermal vein emplaced into Hercynian-aged sillimanite schists, quartzdiorite porphyries and granite pegmatites.

Mining started around 1840, although according to old documents, metal extraction had been done in the area since the 14th-15th centuries. The main production took place between 1900 and 1980, with several stops during and after the Spanish Civil War (1930´s and early 1940´s).

The main shaft - the Leonor mine - reached about 300 m depth, connecting a dozen of galleries at different levels. During the last decades (1960´s to end of activity) fluorite was the main product, which was processed in facilities close to the mine.

The mine ceased activity in late 1979. The ore processing plant closed in early 1980. The subterranean galleries are today inaccessible. The few dumps that still remained since 1980 have been gradually removed, and today there is not much material where to search for minerals.
