Chão do Castanheiro, Mesquitela, Mangualde, Distrito de Viseu, Portugal


Granite pegmatites: Be, Li, W, Sn and Ta mines.
Opened at 14-05-1935.
Mine nr. 1890.

Notes:
1 - shafts nr. 1, 2 (Cabeço do Seixo) 3, 4, and 5 (Regada). These two localities correspond to the old mining concession of Chão do Castanheiro.
2 - today all the mines in this pegmatitic formation have a common name: Cubos. This applies to the following uploaded localities: Cabeço do Seixo, Regada, Rochel, Chão do Castanheiro and Cubos-Mesquitela-Mangualde area with eight shafts splited among them.
