Alpine-type Zn-Pb-Ag deposit (similar to Mississippi Valley type deposits), broadly stratabound with some discordant mineralisation composed of brecchia bodies and veining. The deposit has a generally simple mineralogy with low-iron sphalerite, galena and pyrite.
Mineralisation is similar to that of the Paglio Pignolino Mine.
Warning: the mine has resumed activity ("Gorno Zinc Project"), work is under way for the safety of the tunnels, access to the area is forbidden!
