Description SIA A group of ancient adits cut in the contact between the pillow lavas and the conglomerate, on either side of a deep gully. They are located just to the west of Memi open cast and are probably the only remains left of the ancient mine associated with TP006. To the west of the adits there are very well built terrace walls - some 2 m high - built of large diabase boulders as well as smaller ones, still used for cultivation of olive trees and other fruits. Photographs of adits and gully; drawings of adits. Very difficult to map overall.
