About half of its territory is occupied by the «Batolito de los Pedroches» an outcrop of igneous rocks that stretches along about 200 km towards NW-SE, from Don Benito in the province of Badajoz, continuing on the Cordoba, to Arquillos in the province of Jaen. The batholith is between 8 and 30 km wide. The main body, composed mainly by granodiorite, is accompanied by others independent bodies, several of which are located immediately to the N, aligned in the indicated direction. One of them is the «Santa Eufemia pluton», located about 3 km W of this town, embedded in shale and grawackes of the Culm facies, of age Viseense - Namuriense (Lower Carboniferous). It has the shape of an ellipse with the major axis of about 12 km in length, with a E-W direction. The small, about 6 km in lenght, has a N-S direction and consists mainly of porphyritic monzogranites with potassium feldspar megacrystals up to 5cm, with some leucogranite masses and dikes. Both types of rock contain cordierite, alterated to pinnite (Casco Garcia et al., 1989). In the periphery of pluton, embedded in granite but sometimes also on the shales of the area of contact metamorphism, around ten mineralizations with wolframite and iron arsenides (arsenopyrite and löllingite) can be found in quartz veins. The principal subject of this article is the Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine, also known as Alcantarilla mine, Ventosilla mine or Encinilla Baja mine. Dicks and veins in the area. NE 30º veins are related to Pb mineralizations, N-S veins to Cu. The wolfram bearing veins run 120º NE where the Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine is located. Situation maps of the Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine. Cat Minerals, no.1, oct 16' 11 It is probably the most important mine, and it is located at the eastern end of the pluton, in the area where the largest mass of leucograniteis, approximately 1.8 km NNW of Cortijo de Cogolla Alta (or Cogollarta), 1.4 km W of Casa de la Encinilla Baja and 8.5 km E of Belalcazar in this municipality. Its geographical coordinates are 38°34’14.98 N and 5°3’40.32 W. Wolframite, arsenides, and the main objective of this work, the secondary minerals formed by their alteration, appears in three lode systems, with directions N 40 W, N 70 W and N 25 E. The first two are the most important (Rechenberg, 1954). They are between 5 cm and 30 cm thick, and are subvertical or dipping between 90 and 70° to SW (Casco Garcia et al., 1988). The host rock underwent some alteration processes during deposition of mineralization, leading to sometimes produce moscovitizaciones and greisen type mineralizations (Casco García et al., 1988). The primary mineralization, both wolframite (with a predominance of ferberita term) as arsenides, are forming «nests» within the quartz. Entrance to one of very few short underground workings. Main dump in January 2015. The Alcantarilla Mine. 12 Cat Minerals, no.1, oct 16' HISTORY According to the Belalcázar oral history, the discovery of tungsten ores in the area was accidental, when a heavy black stone caught the eye of a hunter. After their identification as wolframite, a man called Moises Gonzalez requested the mining concession «Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas». In the early 1950s, due to the Korean War, prices of tungsten increased sharply, fivefold when compared to previous reference values, quite low, resulting from the end of the Second World War. They even surpassed in 1952 the 120 pesetas/kg, but they quickly fell afterwards. In 1950 a German company began working the mine. In the Cañada de Marimiguel, the company opened a pit and built a warehouse, mineral washing facilities and barracks and canteen for workers. Rechenberg (1954), who visited the mine in 1952, indicates that about 15 quartz veins between 40 cm and 1 meter thick were being worked. Much of the exploitations were carried out by workers from Belalcázar, by the system of «sacagéneros». Workers received the tools from the company, and could use their mechanical washing systems, or do it manually in the nearby river. Then the company bought them the clean mineral obtained. At that time the basic salary of a miner in Vizcaya was 17 pesetas per day, which could be up to 25 or 30 pesetas with bonuses for production. A bonanza zone (very rare occurrence), even if the purchase price for the company was far from the value of the ore, could give a worker in one day the equivalent to the normal salary of several weeks. According to rough estimates, during the years of exploitation, the mine produced about 30 tons of ore, which were exported through the port of Vigo. The mining activities lasted only a few years, the ones with high ore prices, and it was never again retaken. As the mine was within the area that was reserved for the Spanish State in the vicinity of the Almaden mines, in the early 1980s, the state company «Minas de Almaden y Arrayanes» conducted a detailed research work (Casco García et al., 1988), concluding that it was not exploitable from an economic point of view. Cat Minerals, no.1, oct 16' 13 Native sulphur / Selenian sulphur S / S-Se Native sulphur was found in the Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine as a product of intense oxidation of arsenopyrite. It occurs in highly lustrous, translucent and well-developed microcrystals up to 0.5 mm in vugs or on fissures of arsenopyrite. The color ranges from white to pale yellow. EDS analysis of some bright yellow individual microcrystals on crystallized scorodite turned out to be selenium-bearing sulphur. Its selenium content varied between 1.2 and 2.5 wt %. Native bismuth Bi Native bismuth occurs as grains up to 8 mm in quartz veins. It shows a silver white color with pinkish tint with metallic luster and is sometimes tarnished iridescent. Native bismuth is rather common at the deposit. MINERALOGY The main mineral extracted was wolframite (ferberite). Given the method of payment and the price of the mineral , workers cleaned up to the last grain of visible mineral, so it is currently very difficult to find it in the dumps. However, from the scientific point of view, the most important minerals are the produced by weathering of the sulphides, mainly löllingite. During this study karibibite and other rare secondary minerals have been found, including seven new to Spain. There are also other minerals that have not yet been identified at this time and that are being studied. Sulphur on karibibite. 1.8 mm FOV. C. Rewitzer coll. Native sulphur. 0.7 mm FOV. C.

Paraguanajuatite Bi2Se3 Tiny lead grey and very lustrous metallic, trigonal crystals up to 25μm in diameter were identified by EDS as paraguanajuatite. The mineral is very rare. The extremely small crystals are difficult to find even under high magnification. Paraguanajuatite is associated with black goethite nodules and golden brown arseniosiderite. Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine is the first reported locality for paraguanajuatite in Spain. Tabular paraguanajuatite crystal with black goethite. 0.15 mm FOV. C. Rewitzer coll.

Bismuthinite Bi2S3 Bismuthinite occurs mostly enclosed in quartz and quartz veins as individual crystals or crystal groups, seldom in radiating aggregates. The mineral was also found as very small crystal groups on cleavage faces of löllingite. Bismuthinite crystals reach a maximum length of 1 mm and are frequently covered by scorodite crystals. Bismuthinite is associated with löllingite, arsenopyrite, quartz, scorodite, karibibite, and arsenolite. Bismuthinite on scorodite. 1 mm FOV. C. Rewitzer coll. Cat Minerals, no.1, oct 16' 15 Löllingite FeAs2 Löllingite occurs as fine-grained aggregates and nodules, massive or slightly porous, up to 30 cm diameter in quartz. Intergrown löllingite crystals are rather rare and can reach up to 1 cm. Free crystallized lenticular löllingite crystals to 1 mm in size on quartz are extremely rare. Löllingite is accompanied by arsenopyrite, molybdenite, bismuthinite, and secondary oxidation products. Molybdenite MoS2 Molybdenite is frequent at Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine. It occurs as thin tabular crystals with hexagonal outline up to 5 mm in size. Common are foliated plates, sometimes radiating aggregates with bluish lead-grey color and high metallic luster. Molybdenite is commonly present in ore aggregates of arsenopyrite and löllingite but was also detected in greisen with «wolframite». Arsenopyrite FeAsS Arsenopyrite forms strongly fractured lenticular crystallized masses up to 15 cm in diameter in quartz gangue. Intergrown crystals up to 2 cm are also present in the deposit. Most of the arsenopyrite is at least partially altered to scorodite and other arsenates. Associated minerals are molybdenite, löllingite, scorodite, jarosite, parasymplesite, karibibite, and arsenolite. Arsenolite in octahedral crystals. Arsenolite As2O3 As a typical oxidation product of primary arsenic minerals, arsenolite is also present at Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine. It occurs as small white translucent octahedrons on fractures of arsenopyrite and löllingite. The luster is vitreous and the crystals measure up to 0.1 mm. Lenticular löllingite crystals. 3 mm FOV.

Ferberite FeWO4 Tungsten-ore was the purpose of the mining activities. According to Reichenberg (1952), wolframite was very frequent at Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine, but nowadays it is a rarity. The dominant term was the ferberite (Rechenberg, 1952. García Casco et al, 1988). The mineral occurs in crystallized aggregates up to 10 cm size embedded in quartz. Terminated prismatic crystals in cavities of quartz are rare and reach 1 cm in size. The color is black to dark brown-black, sometimes iridescent, with metallic luster and a dark brown streak. Associated minerals besides quartz are arsenopyrite and löllingite. During our SEM investigation, tiny groups of sharp, tabular ferberite crystals were found. Single crystals of these groups reach a length of 50μm, possibly of secondary origin. Associated minerals with these secondary ferberite crystals are scorodite and phyllotungstite. Ferberite, aggregates of tabular twinned crystals. Cat Minerals, no.1, oct 16' 17 Russellite on goethite. Russellite. Russellite Bi2WO6 Fine grained to compact beige masses or tiny globular aggregates of thin-flaked crystals up to 0.5 mm in diameter turned out to be russellite. Rarely pseudomorphs of russellite after bismuthinite were found. This inconspicuous mineral is associated with golden-brown goethite, natrojarosite, rarely atelestite, native bismuth and ferberite. Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine is the first Spanish location for this species. Russellite. 1 mm FOV. C. Rewitzer coll. Russellite. 2.2 mm FOV. C.

Cat Minerals, no.1, oct 16' 19 Karibibite Fe2As4O9 Karibibite was found as an alteration product of löllingite, formed under similar conditions and with similar appearance to those from the type locality, Karibib, Namibia (Knorring et al., 1973) and of the most recently found in Oumlil, Morocco (Favreau et al., 2007). It occurs as golden brownish-yellow spindle-shaped bundles of fibers. Single fibers are very thin – probably less than one micron. The fibers are very soft and are readily bent. Karibibite occurs in vugs of löllingite and in quartz cavities and fissures close to löllingite. The diameters of the karibibite bundles very seldom reach a maximum of 2 mm; most are much smaller. Associated minerals are löllingite, quartz, scorodite, parasymplesite, tooeleite, and bismuthinite. The Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine mine is the first occurrence of karibibite in Spain.

SEM photographs showed wellterminated, wheel-shaped crystal clusters, mostly in globular aggregates. Single aggregates reach a diameter of 0.1 mm. EDS analyses accorded very well with the mineral tooeleite. The average calculated formula (n=18) of tooeleite from Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine is Fe6 3+(As3+O3)3,65(SO4)0,98(OH)4·5H2O. This mineral was described by Cesbron and Williams (1992) from specimens of the tailings from the U.S. mine in Tooelle Co., Utah (USA). It is a sulfate-arsenite (Morin et al., 2007; Nishimura and Robins, 2008), the only mineral of this type found so far in nature. Tooeleite is rare at the deposit and only associated with scorodite, karibibite, natrojarosite, phyllotungstite, parasymplesite and occasionally with tiny native sulphur crystals. Optically, tooeleite can be confused with orangetinted scorodite. A distinguishing feature is that tooeleite mostly occurs as individual, globular bubbles and aggregates, whereas scorodite forms large laminar crystallized coatings and masses. Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine is the first reported locality for naturally formed tooeleite in Europe and the fifth non-slag location in the world. Schneiderhöhnite Fe2+Fe3 3+[As5O13] Considering the presence of karibibite, an iron arsenite, at Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine, schneiderhöhnite was long expected and sought for by the authors, but unfortunately all similar looking black mineral phases turned out to be ferberite or parasymplesite. Finally schneiderhöhnite was detected as small black hedgehog-shaped aggregates of sharp triclinic crystals with submetallic luster. The globular crystal clusters were found in a quartz vug associated only with minor karibibite and scorodite. The maximum diameter of the schneiderhöhnite «hedgehogs» reaches 1 mm. Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine is the first reported locality for schneiderhöhnite in Spain and the 13th location in the world. Schneiderhöhnite. 0.8 mm FOV. Carlos Utrera coll.

The composition of the phyllotungstite seems to be quite variable, with a very complex structure (Grey et al, 2013). So far, the Clara mine was the only site in the world that had appeared this mineral. At Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine, have been found striking intensive yellow to yellow-green crusts, tabular orthorhombic crystals and radial globular aggregates on quartz were analyzed by EDS and showed an analytical result very close to phyllotungstite. The mineral is associated with arsenopyrite, parasymplesite, karibibite, and sometimes ferberite. The crystals are up to 0.25 mm in size, translucent with pearly luster und show a yellowish streak. The radial and globular aggregates reach a maximum diameter of 0.5 mm. Phyllotungstite. 1.6 mm FOV. C. Rewitzer coll. Phyllotungstite. 0.8 mm FOV. C. Rewitzer coll. Phyllotungstite. 2 mm FOV. C.

The phyllotungstite of Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine, which would be the second location cited for this mineral in the world, contains 1.7% K and 3.4% Ca, being Pb and Cs undetectable. As a notable difference with phyllotungstite from the type locality should be noted the presence in the mineral of Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine of a very high content of As, 22% on average, so it is conceivable that a more detailed structural study could prompt consideration of this mineral as a distinct, new species.

Brochantite was only found once covering a small former bornite crystal in a quartz vug. The mineral shows typical blue-green crystals up to 0.3 mm. Jarosite KFe3 3+(SO4)2(OH)6 Jarosite is a widespread secondary mineral in ore deposits, formed by oxidation of iron sulphides, but very rare at Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine. The mineral forms pale brown to honeybrown tabular crystals and crystal groups (sometimes radiating) in fissures and small cavities of quartz and in crystallized scorodite masses. The crystal size is seldom larger than 0.2 mm across. Natrojarosite NaFe3 3+ (SO4)2(OH)6 Natrojarosite is also present at Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine. Very similar to jarosite, natrojarosite forms yellow to pale brown tabular crystals and crystal groups (sometimes radiating) in fissures and small cavities in quartz and in crystallized scorodite masses, associated with tooeleite. Crystal size is seldom larger than 0.1 mm across. Beige-brown microcrystalline masses on quartz fractures turned out to be a mixture of jarosite and natrojarosite with a variable content of Na+ and K+. Scheelite Ca(WO4) Scheelite was found at the locality as small massive aggregates intergrown in greisen, in quartz and sometimes in löllingite ore. The authors found only very few pieces with scheelite crystals of creamy color with typical adamantine-vitreous luster in quartz voids up to 3 mm. Although scheelite is common in the deposit, it is extremely difficult to distinguish from quartz in the field because of the very similar color. Natrojarosite on tooeleite. 0.9 mm FOV. C.

The mineral is almost impossible to distinguish from scorodite, which is probably the reason why the authors found crystallized rooseveltite only in one specimen so far. Thin botryoidal crusts and earthy aggregates of rooseveltite are much more common at the locality.

Conichalcite CaCu(AsO4)(OH) Only a few kilometers from its type locality, Hinojosa del Duque, conichalcite is also present at Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine, however very rare. It occurs as typical apple-green globular aggregates up to 0.2 mm on quartz and is only associated with arseniosiderite. Segnitite PbFe3 3+(AsO4)2(OH,H2O)6 Honey-brown, well-formed, pseudocubic rhombohedral crystals of 0.3 mm size were EDS analyzed and turned out to be segnitite. The mineral is associated with galena and mimetite but is extremely rare at the deposit. Hydroxylapatite Ca5(PO4)3(OH) A single pale green, translucent crystal in quartz turned out to be hydroxylapatite. The crystal size is about 2 mm and the only associated mineral is scheelite. The mineral is very inconspicuous and can be easily overlooked, neverthess hydroxylapatite seems to be very rare at the mine. Preisingerite Bi3(AsO4)2O(OH) The mineral occurs in the deposit together with arseniosiderite and goethite as white to pale yellow rounded aggregates of rhomboidal plates up to 0.5 mm in size, or occasionally as «hedgehogs» up to 0.3 mm in diameter. The luster is subadamantine. Preisingerite was found in a small weathering zone in one of the quartz veins. The only associated minerals are black goethite nodules and brown arseniosiderite microcrystals. Preisingerite is very rare at the deposit. Preisingerite has been cited as pseudomorphosis of lillianita, in the La Sultana mine in Gomesende (Orense) (Calvo, 2015). Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine is the second reported locality for preisingerite in Spain. Atelestite Bi2(AsO4)O(OH) Tabular grey crystals up to 0.3 mm on russellite were analyzed as atelestite. The mineral is extremely rare at Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine and is found in association with russellite, ferberite, and native bismuth. The Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine is the first Spanish occurrence of atelestite. Cat Minerals, no.1, oct 16' 31 Preisingerite. Preisingerite. Preisingerite on arseniosiderite. 2 mm FOV. C.

Scorodite Fe3+AsO4·2H2O Scorodite, as a common oxidation product of arsenopyrite and löllingite, is very frequent at the Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine. Scorodite occurs mainly as green-white botryoidal aggregates and crusts on the surface of arsenopyrite-bearing rocks. In some parts of the deposit the arsenopyrite is completely replaced by scorodite. In these zones scorodite occurs in up to 30 cm thick crystallized masses in quartz. The scorodite shows different habits: microcrystalline aggregates with some dispersed spherulites, spherulitic aggregates, concentrically banded, colloform texture and finally prismatic crystals in cavities. The color ranges from colorless to yellow, from pale green-white to pale blue to even red-brown. Well developed, prismatic crystals are rare at Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine. These crystals reach a maximum size of 2 mm. Scorodite is associated with arsenopyrite, löllingite, quartz, jarosite, native sulphur, tooeleite, and karibibite. We have also found scorodite as perimorphs of other minerals, without relicts. In some cases, the morphology allows to consider that the originasl mineras was parasymplesite. Earthy, intense yellow-green crusts and masses on fissures in löllingitearsenopyrite masses are a younger generation of scorodite with a notable content of 5 wt% thallium on average (EDS analysed).

These crystals are elongated parallel to [001] and flattened on {010}. The crystals are dark to pale blue-green to translucent grey green and reach a maximum size of 3 mm for single crystals and 5 mm for crystal groups. Beautiful, highly lustrous, gemmy clear olive-green to blue-green crystal groups are very rare. Parasymplesite is associated with löllingite, arsenopyrite, karibibite, tooeleite, quartz and scorodite. Rather seldom, white to pale yellow perimorph «hedgehogs» were found at the locality.

Arseniosiderite Ca2Fe3 3+(AsO4)3O2·3H2O Arseniosiderite is a typical low temperature oxidation product of arsenopyrite and löllingite. It also replaces earlier arsenates such as scorodite. At Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine it is frequent, but always only in small amounts. It rarely forms well-developed tiny crystals associated with mica on quartz crystals, more often however small fibrous radiating aggregates in löllingite-quartz breccia. The color ranges from black to ochre-brown; the streak is ochre-yellow. Arseniosiderite. 1.2 mm FOV. C. Rewitzer coll. Cat Minerals, no.1, oct 16' 37 Zalesiite with Hematite. 2.6 mm FOV. C.

Zalesiite CaCu6(AsO4)2(AsO3OH)(OH)6·3H2O This mineral forms tufts of acicular crystals to 1 mm. The semitransparent to transparent hexagonal crystals are up to 500 ¼m long and 10 ¼m wide. The color is pale green. Zalesiite is very rare at La Alcantarilla and was found in vugs of crystallized quartz. Zeunerite Cu(UO2)2(AsO4)2·12H2O Zeunerite is the first and only uranium mineral found at the mine. The mineral so far has been found in one single specimen and shows typical pale green, transparent to translucent, tabular crystals on quartz. The size of the zeunerite crystals reaches 1 mm. Pharmacosiderite KFe4 3+(AsO4)3(OH)4·6-7H2O Pharmacosiderite forms yellow-brown, bluegreen, green, and pale green to almost white translucent cubes up to 2 mm on edge, although most crystals are only ~0.5 mm across. The cubes seldom show penetration twins and stepped growth features on the cube surface. The crystals occur in cavities and fracture surfaces within quartz and löllingitearsenopyrite ore and the mineral is also present in masses of crystallized scorodite. Associated minerals are quartz, löllingite, arsenopyrite, scorodite, and arseniosiderite. 38 Cat Minerals, no.1, oct 16' Hematite with zalesiite. 0.8 mm FOV. C. Rewitzer coll. Prismatic mimetite crystal. Prismatic mimetite crystals with pseudocubic rhombohedral crystals of segnitit. Other minerals Quartz is the main component of the mineralized veins. It is usually found massive, white and translucent, although small colorless crystals appear in geodes. Galena is found very occasionally in small grains, up to 2 mm in loellingitearsenopyrite breccia, and, in a single sample, into small crystals up to 0.3 mm in cavities in quartz. In this case it appears associated with segnitite and mimetite. Mimetite is extremely rare and was only found in one specimen so far. It shows typical milky white up to 0.7 mm prismatic crystals, terminated by combination of pinacoid and bipyramid. Hematite appears as thin lamellar or tabular crystals, black, on quartz crystals in the cavities of the veins, and more frequently tiny reddish brown to red microcrystals in fractures in the greisen. Golden brown masses and thin layers of goethite are rather frequent at Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine. Seldom the mineral occurs in beautiful golden-brown, globular aggregates of very thin-flaked crystals – sometimes very hard to distinguish from arseniosiderite. Goethite also occurs as black spindle-shaped lustrous crystals. Rarely found tiny black-brown translucent tabular crystals in muscovite matrix were analyzed as TiO2 by EDS. In consideration of its tabular orthorhombic habit the authors identified these crystals as brookite. The crystals reach a maximal size of 1 mm. Also appear small crystals with the same composition confirmed by EDS, black with a typical metallic luster, of a bipiramidal tetragonal habit, intergrown in muscovite. These crystals have been identified as anatase. A single well-formed tabular crystal, 3 mm in size, on crystallized quartz was analyzed by EDS as ilmenite. The color is iron-black with a brown tint and a metallic luster. Goethite. 2.6 mm FOV. C. Rewitzer coll. Garcia Casco et al. (1988) indicated the presence of tourmaline, topaz and possibly phenaquite deposited in the first stage of mineralization before the deposit of metallic minerals. Rechenberg (1954) indicates the presence of primary barite, associated with quartz, wolframite and arsenides, on veins with orientation N 7TH W. Cat Minerals, no.1, oct 16' 39 References -Calvo, M.

Christian Rewitzer info@apo-furth.de Rupert Hochleitner rh.minstaatssl@lrz-uni-muenchen.de Thomas Fehr Carlos Utrera Martin multrer@orange.es Photomicrography by Christian Rewitzer This finding, very important given the extraordinary rarity of this association, could not be confirmed on the field. Besides as a component of granite, muscovite is very frequent in the gangue system of the deposit. It occurs in the greisen and in the quartz veinlets and shows cream colored tabular crystals and tiny crystal clusters up to 1 mm in cavities of quartz. The potassium feldspar variety adularia was found at Nuestra Señora de las Alcantarillas mine as creamy to white colored crystals up to 3 mm in fractures and vugs intimately associated with mineralized quartz veins in contact with the granitic rock. Although there is a certain local tradition of finding small gold nuggets in the area, so far the authors have failed to find native gold in the deposit. However, it is not ruled out that there is mineralization, as has been found as small grains and arborescents growths, associated with native bismuth, in other old wolfram mine located near, the Cogolla Alta mine.
