Detailed Description

Als Fortsetzung vom Kamoto-Tagebau wurde hier 1982 eine Uranlinse gefunden, einige 150 t, die vollkommen abgebaut wurde. Das Erz wurde auf Halde nach Musonoi gebracht. Im Erz wurden u.a. Kamotoit-(Y), Françoisit-(Nd), Astrocyanit-(Ce) und Shabait-(Nd) erstmals entdeckt.

Daneben gab es noch reichlich massiven Cuprit - wenn Kristalle, dann bescheiden. Besser waren Chalcotrichite bis 1 cm.
