Inside – Minas da Queiriga

[PT]
As minas da Queiriga, ou minas de Lagares, foram uma exploração mineira com um apogeu na década de 40 chegando a empregar 500 operários.
Actualmente desactivadas, estão a ser objecto de um estudo de exploração turística por parte da Câmara de Vila Nova de Paiva e da empresa concessionária.
Os principais minérios extraídos eram: a Cassiterite (óxido de estanho) e a Wolframite (volfrâmio).
Estas minas são particularmente interessantes pela forma pouco habitual de desmonte da rocha: não sendo a céu aberto, também não são em galerias. O desmonte foi feito criando grandes espaços sustentados por colunas naturais.
Além disso, a busca do filão levou a que o desmonte tenha um desnível muito acentuado.

Queiriga's mines, were a mining exploration with a peak in the 40s employing 500 workers.
Currently disabled are the subject of a study of tourism by the Board of Vila Nova de Paiva and the concessionaire.
The main ores extracted were: cassiterite (tin oxide) and wolframite (tungsten).
These mines are particularly interesting for the unusual step of quarry rock: not surface mining, nor digging tunnels. The dismantling was done by creating large areas supported by natural rock columns.
Furthermore, the search for the lode has led to the quarry has a slope too steep
