|You will participate in the restauration of a site that represents an example of remarkably well conserved historical and geological heritage, and is one of the most important mines in the Alps. The Vallauria mine was exploited for its galena (silver-bearing lead), and blend (zinc based mineral) from the Middle Ages until 1930.
Workcamp : You will work underground building a stone wall along the path of the visits, in the medieval part of the mine, securing the area. You will be working four days per week from 08:30 to 12:00 and 14:00 to 17:30. You will be accompanied by a technical supervisor.
Accomodation : You will be sharing a room with 3-4 other volunteers. Bathrooms are also shared. Meals are prepared by our kitchen staff. You will be asked to lend a hand with the preparation of some food.
Leisures : You will discover the regional mountainous environment and sporting activities: hiking/ guided tour in the “Vallée des Merveilles” in the Mercantour National Park, swimming in the Bendola river, visiting local villages (Tende, La Brigue, Saorge), trying the Via Feratta and in the evenings, enjoying dance, photo-video sessions, stargazing, board games, barbecue, international meals.
