Please help recover Mac OS Extended partition

Can you please help me recovering my backup HDD? I don't know how to proceed.

It's a WD Elements 1.5TB, one 1TB exFAT partition that successfully gets mounted and a 0.5TB that doesn't get mounted.

This is what I get when running fsck_hfs /dev/disk2s1:

Executing fsck_hfs (version hfs-366.70.3).
** Checking Journaled HFS Plus volume.
Invalid B-tree node size
(3, 0)
** The volume could not be verified completely.

This is the result of a deep search:

I see two repeated partitions. I think I'm supposed to mark one of them as primary and let the other be deleted, but I don't know which one to choose since I can't see files in HFS partitions.
What should I do?
Thank you!

The first partition labeled "Mac HFS" should be the right one because the second partition labeled "Mac HFS" overlaps with your partition that is 1TB big.
