Susa Valley left bank
Sapei-Rubiana (TO)


We are located in the left bank of the Susa Valley in the municipality of Rubiana (TO), between the bellows and the hamlet of little house in the locality of Granè, a natural slums descending from the Summit of monte Sapei.

Gps and utm coordinates given are only indicative and are the Sapei base, from 1166 share until the close of the Sapei Saddle up at an altitude of about 1570, various localized rodingite lenses with considerable ease, are located in the enormous pietraia.

Were not detected primary deposits, rodingite highlights these crystallizations.



Apatite, chlorite-diopside-Garnet-magnetite.



My heartfelt thanks to Istituto Geografico Militare in Florence that has made available the cartography of the area treated.
