Geocache Description:


Situada en un bosque mediterráneo espectacular, las encinas protegen y esconden esta mina. De origen romano, todavía conserva galerías escavadas a mano y donde se extraía casiterita. Explotada por la emblemática familia Figaredo, empresarios asturianos vinculados a la minería, la planta de «El Carrascal» se reabrió a principios de los 70. Se pierde en la memoria la historia de esta excavación, que tuvo actividad muchos años antes.Trabajo duro, tocaba hacer de todo, desde barrenistas hasta cargar el escombro en los vagones y sacarlo con la mula. Los hombres se metían en la galería con el candil de carbón para alumbrar el túnel y mina arriba mina abajo tirando de la mula. Los animales transportaban el mineral a lo largo de la galería de más de 80 metros, en la que los mineros abrieron tres bocas de respiradero _____________________________________________________________________________________ This mine is situated within a spectacular Mediterranean forest, protected and hidden by holm oaks. The mine was originally exploited by the ancient Romans and still has hand-carved galleries, used to extract cassiterite. History Exploited by the Asturian entrepreneurs from the renowned Figaredo family (investors in the mining sector), the mine of “El Carrascal” (Mina Carrascal) was reopened in the early 1970s. The mine was exploited in earlier times as well, when work was tough—from blasting the rock (a work done by the “barrenistas”) to loading rubble into the wagons and carrying it out with the help of mules. Workers used coal lamps inside the tunnel and spent their workdays going up and down the 80-meter gallery, supplied with three air vents. ______________________________________________________________________________________ Situado em uma espectacular floresta mediterrânica, carvalhos proteger e esconder isto meu.
