At the beginning of the 20th century the zinc expoitation began in the area of Arres and Bossost
The Val d’Aran was at one time strictly a area for mineral extraction.
In 1912 the Victoria Mine was in full operation taking out approximately 80 tons of rough minerals a day and started the operation of a mineral wash basin in Bossost. Between 100 and 150 people worked in the mines spread out both in the interior and exterior of the galleries.
