Name(s) in local language(s): Mines de Batère, Corsavy, Arles sur Tech, Pyrénées-Orientales, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
 
Old Fe mine
In fact there have been several iron ore mines around the mont Canigou (mines de Batère et des Indis, de la Pinouse etc..at 1000m and more of elevation.). The ore arrived in the railways station of Arles sur Tech, and then was despatched either by railway either by ship (Argeles on the Mediterranean)for being processed. The last mines closed in the eighties after many decades of working. Several old postcards show various aspects of mining in the first decades of the 20th century.
