Copper-gold deposit located in the Cantabrian zone of the Hercynian Iberian Massif.

The mineralization is associated with a late Hercynian granodioritic intrusion with numerous sill-like intrusions, developped along stratification planes and controlling fluid circulation.

The granodiorite intrudes Upper Silurian sandstones and Lower Devonian limestones and dolostones.

Several types of alteration are present :

- Exoskarn (metasomatic replacement of marbles) divided in different monomineralic zones replacing each other
- Endoskarn (metasomatic replacement of granodiorite)
- Veining stage : second hydrothermal episode affecting exoskarn
- Amphibole arsenopyrite replacement of marbles
- K-feldspar alteration of granodiorite
- Sericitic greisen and silicification developed in the granodiorite

Satellite mine of the El Valle Mine. Open-pit mining started in the fall of 2000. Underground mining developed since 2003.
