Ancient Bi-Co-Ni-As mine, located in the ravine named Collioux de Loton, NE of La Barma mine.
The main mineralisation consists of arsenopyrite in quartz gangue, often altered into parasymplesite, scorodite and pharmacosiderite. Native bismuth is very frequent and it is the source of rare alteration minerals, such as atelestite, preisingerite and beyerite.
