Cabo de Gata 046When I think of gold mines I think of old mountain towns where men are panning for gold in the streams.  This gold mine is a different story; here the gold is infused with other ores and in order to separate them they need to be chemically extracted.  Rodalqilar mine is an old abandoned gold mine where the chemical spills have permanently stained stone and you can explore every vat and crevice at your own risk.  mobile 080Use caution as most of the building is deteriorating.  In the valley behind the mine it looks like there may be some deeper mines to explore as well; we didn’t have time as a thunderstorm was a brewin’ but if you dare to venture down there you should probably bring a partner and a torch.rodalq
