Deposit with the same geological context as La Bombarde to the north (mineralized cipolin layer). This layer is operated in a quarry since the 18th century (for lime then for road gravels today). Some narrow quartz-fluorite veins have been discovered around a porphyroïd microgranite dyke during the northern extension of the quarry since 2007...
