(m. 110-210 on s.l.) - Is the most recent stope, opened in 1950 and closed in 1981 when mining exploitation in Elba stopped.
It is the most northern and also the bigger stope of the mine.
In his area sporadic exploitations was made in XIX century also: are referred as "Falde di Monte Giove" (Mount Giove slopes).
Ore body is hematite with pyrite bed.
