A fluorspar-barite-Pb-Zn mine, owned by Soc. Minière de Spath Fluor et de Barytine.

Cenozoic fluorite mineralization : cementation under 115b/130°C fluid conditions ; hydrothermal solution rising from underlying Triassic series, along horsts and grabens.

NOTE: Many of the well-crystallized "Barite" specimens from here, marketed from 1998 onwards, are actually Celestite, as proven by several EDS analyses and density measurements, by Dr. Bob Housley and John Attard, among others.
