On the northern slopes of the Plauris Mountain Massiv, for over a century, the geological aspects of the territory have been an important reference for all the activities of the whole community. The Resartico Mines have been for a long time one of the main sources of income of the inhabitants of Resiutta. The activity of the extraction, together with several ruins and galleries carved in the mountains give a lot of precious information, which was collected by the NaturePark and now shown in the Resartico Mine Exhibition organized in the former school in Resiutta.

The numerous panels, show photos illustrating the activities that were developed in the mine, the difficult working conditions, the history of the research and the geological and natural aspects of the area. .

Particularly interesting is the rebuilding in life-size of one part of the gallery with a truck used for the mine materials transport.

You can observe samples of rocks, particularly the bituminous schist used as the tools for extraction, and different equipment used by the miners. The exhibition is complete with a model of the protected area that represents the valley, the galleries and the layers, and a computer presentation of all the documentation collected during the research.
