Parco Minerario Merla

Comments

Visit a century old mine and see the techniques employed to extract barite an important mineral used to refine sugar, in rubber, coated papers, pigments, glues, plastics and in protective materials against radiation. The material comes out the ground a brilliant white colour and was separated by women for its clarity and quality before being milled into production. Walk 2 km underground for a total experience of about 90 minutes.
