NB- This site has to be considered as part of the Troodos ophiolite, a 90 million year old fragment of extremely well-preserved oceanic crust. This is an excellent example of a Cyprus type volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit where the upper oxidised part has not been destroyed. Ancient (Roman) galleries and adits are preserved in the walls of the open pit as are the various "ochres" of the gossan zone.
