Angel Francisco continues to surprise in his lecture Rocks and Minerals (15/02/2013)

At the start of the conference, Angel Francisco soared million years of history to explain the formation of the term of Jumilla, its mountains, hills and mounds and minerals that emerged by the volcanic magma to be melting beneath the continent, magma transformed into rock with a unique composition, composition unlike any other world.

Through the collision of tectonic plates, small continents joined the Alboran and Iberian, pushed by the African plate, leaving Jumilla and its relief, within that tectonic movement and volcanoes, as in the example of Mines Celia and La Rosa.

Result of the collision, began erosion sludge deposited in the bottom of the sea, which would fund emerging folding and falling ridges of peaks rising new sediments rise again and so on, leading to mountains and ravines as The Morrón, Los Hermanillos, the Buenaire, the quarry, in The Carche, La Sierra del Buey, and appreciate those materials that are, in part due to erosion, exposing layers of old and new land and folds, thus also the formation of rocks and minerals that characterize this area, as the rapporteur explained.

Jumilla is located in a valley being filled by the sedimentation process that is still growing and filling of new materials.

We can also find a major flaw in the Jewish Cañada.

As our mountains are calcareous, rain water makes carbonic acid, and when coupled with carbonate of lime, lime becomes bicarbonate, which covers many of the rocks.

They are rocks that fall from the mountains while catching a foundation layer that makes rough.

In Jumilla are thousands of quarries, such as salt La Rosa, providing much wealth and creating many jobs.

There are also high quality clays beneath Los Hermanillos and wheat Glen Mine of Escandeles.

Celia mines supplying the gemstone as asparagine, lasting exploitation, some 14 years that did a train pulled that reached Agramón, hosting more than 20 different kinds of minerals and providing fertile ground for the area.

Other minerals and rocks that surfaced in the term are aragonite, calcite, Jumillita, Apatite, Desert Roses, salt, Boetitas, titanium dioxide, micaceous hematite, and a new mineral discovered recently.

Ultimately, Jumilla has whimsical landscapes formed by collision of plates, rising and sinking, forming hills, mountains and hills, and a unique mineral wealth with its various components.
