Serifos is barren and sparsely populated. Its unique wealth is the iron ore (hematite, magnetite and in some locations copper), which are marginally exploitable. Mining began in prehistoric times and intensified in the late 19th - early 20th c., giving way to inland communities, but was soon abandoned.
