On the opposite side we can see the deposits for the lumber and the explosives, the entry of the" Carla", the lowest gallery not yet carrying the name of the quota to which is connected.

The buildings beside the lumber deposit were once the departure station of the aerial ropeway that transported downhill the talc from the Mines of the Crosetto. There are, besides, some stores in the open where the talc is divided before going on for the grinding mill of the Malanaggio.
