It is the most southern and contiguous at the built-up area of Rio Marina. The main ore body is hematite, with limonite and pyrite; probably exploitation began with the Etruscans.

In the recent times was used for ore deposit and refinement systems.
Here in the 19th century were found the best specimens of hematite. Today it is still possible to find good specimens.
