This marble quarry, officially named Val Bona A or Quarry No. 91 (see coordinates), hosts the same minerals found in the Val Pulita quarry, located on the nortwestern slope of the same mountain (Torano quarry basin). The two quarries have been connected with an underground tunnel. Presently (2018), this quarry is not exploited. Another quarry, named Val Bona B or Quarry no. 94 (44°5'32"N, 10°7'39"E), is located at a lower elevation towards the valley floor of Canal Piccinino.

Val Bona became famous among mineral collectors for the beautiful specimens of sulfides and sulfosalts found in the 1980s and 1990s. In particular, chalcopyrite has been found as bisphenoidal crystals of yellow-bronze colour in association with enargite, colusite, sulvanite and exceptionally with "thorogummite" (Orlandi and Del Chiaro, 1989). Exceptional specimens of wurtzite, with crystals up to 2 cm, have been found in association with colusite, sulvanite, pyrite, as well as Bi sulfosalts (aikinite, cannizzarite, and cosalite). Colusite occurs as tetrahedral crystals up to 3-4 mm in size, bronze in colour (Bombarda et al., 1999). Sulvanite forms cubic crystals, up to 5 mm on edge, pitch-black in colour, with a metallic luster. In some cases, sulvanite crystals are partly altered to volborthite, whereas only rarely this alteration is complete, with the substitution of sulvanite with a mixture of volborthite and malachite. Aikinite has been found as acicular crystals, slightly flattened, with striations parallel to the elongation, lead-grey in colour, tipically associated with pyrite and wurtzite. Cannizzarite rarely appears as tabular micaceous crystals, up to 0.5 mm in length, lead-grey in colour, in association with wurtzite. Cosalite has been found as mm-sized acicular crystals, lead-grey in colour, associated with sulvanite and colusite (Orlandi & Franzini, 1994). The occurrence of moëloite, as reddish acicular crystals, is reported by Favreau (2008).

"Thorogummite" was found only once, as a mm-sized globular aggregate, characterised by a "bread-crust" surface, white-greenish in colour, friable, overgrown by small chalcopyrite crystals. Chemical analyses (Orlandi & Del Chiaro, 1989) showed a ThO2 content close to 55 wt.%, UO2 close to 40 wt.%, and a low amount of SiO2 (5 wt.%). According to these authors, the mineral could be classified as an intermediate member between "thorogummite" and coffinite. "Thorogummite" has been discredited as a valid species in 2014 (IMA14-B). However, Biagioni et al. (2019) have pointed out that, if the chemical data given by Orlandi & Del Chiaro (1989) are reliable, the empirical chemical formula for "thorogummite" from Val Bona, recalculated on the basis of (Th+U) = 1 atom per formula unit, is (Th0.58U0.42)(SiO4)0.23(OH)3.08, i.e. that of a phase different from thorite. Consequently, further studies on this specimen would be desirable.
