Another famous sulphur mine in the municipal territory of Enna. It is located on the left bank of River Salso, also known as Imera Meridionale, at the western foot of Monte Capodarso (in front of Trabonella mine, on the right bank of the same river, in Caltanissetta province).
This mine, closed around 1984, has yielded a very large amount of aragonite crystals.
