Big hole probably due to a collision, on date and place unknown.
            She sunk on 16/January/1973 close to the Portuguese coast during a trip with ore from Marbella to Avilés. The ore humidity was high and it liquified, moving to a side producing the sinking with four crewmembers dead.
            The newspaper "Pueblo" published an extensive article, including interviews to the survivors and the crewmembers of the vessel that most actively participate in the rescue, the Yebala, owned by Naviera Astro. All the newspaper published the sinking.
