SCY352 : Politiko Kokkinorotsos 13

mining pit

Grid reference: 519120/3874850
Cadastral plan: XXXVIII/8
SIA: SIA 7 (Politiko Kokkinorotsos)

Shallow pit in eroded gossan material, c. 15-20 m to south or southeast of SCY351. The gossan outcrop is c. 12-14 m long, and has haematite and malachite (in silica) staining. The gossan is mostly eroded, with a few patches of finely crushed gossan on the hill slope. SCY352 is a shallow pit on top of all this. It is too deep to be eroded and there is no erosion gully leading out of it: it is a bowl-shaped depression into top of gossan.
