Vein-type lead-zinc deposit, consisting of (1) several large NE-SW trending sulphide-dominated veins, up to 40 m thick and 13 km long, and (2) smaller baryte-fluorite dominated veins, up to 10 m thick, trending NE-SW and E-W. The veins are mainly hosted in Paleozoic rocks.
This deposit has been operated by several french compagnies from 1923 to 1960.
