Routenbeschreibung

To reach the mining site of Herin, you go beyond the locality called Barbustel and you meet a crossroads from which you continue to the locality Capiron. From here, take path 8a which leads to the Hérin mine. The mine can also be identified from the valley floor due to the yellow-orange route. Here we find some rundown buildings testifying the exploitation of the deposit, a fountain dated “1913”, the departure of the cableway that transported the ore to the washery in locality Fabbrica and an old explosive deposit. At the end of the 19th century, the Hérin mine became Piedmont’s largest copper supplier. Later, pyrite started to be extracted for the agricultural industry. In 1957 the Hérin field was abandoned.
