Closed gold mine.
High-sulfidation, epithermal, gold deposit.
Mineralizations are concentrated along tectonic structures where hydrothermal alteration is more intense. The mineral assemblage consists of Fe-Cu-As-Sb sulphides and sulphosalts (enargite-luzonite-pyrite-tetrahedrite-tennantite).

Note: It is worthy to understand that after the closure of the mine a lot of environmental and safety issues arose because of the peculiarity of the post-mining treatment procedures of the bulk ore. Lots of news, mostly in Italian language, can be found in the web.
