European Mineral Day in Minerali Industriali – 20-21 September 2019

Minerali Industriali has joined the European Mineral Day event by opening the doors of the underground quartz quarry in Sondalo in upper Valtellina (SO).

The event, organized in collaboration with the Municipality of Sondalo and the local Pro Loco, will take place in two different moments: on Friday 20th September with meeting at the Sondalo plant at 13:30 for employees’ families and authorities; Saturday 21st September with meeting at the Sondalo plant at 9:00 am for the external public.

There will be a guided tour of the underground quartz quarry called Bosco del Sasso and the world premiere of the video on the history of the miners of Frontale, a district of Sondalo that has given Christmases to miners who have worked all over the world.

Please note that both events will be limited.

The “European Minerals Day” event is promoted by IMA Europe (European Industrial Minerals Association), and aims to make the minerals world famous. In fact, the mining industry plays a vital role in the lives of all of us: 70% of the manufactured products in Europe depend on minerals.
