There are now two mines here: the Agoudal-Center mine and the Agoudal-Est mine. The Agoudal-Est mine is the youngest one. Both mines are not (yet) connected underground and I don't think they will be, as they are ca. 1 km apart.
As far as I know (FdW), the Agoudal-Center mine delivered most if not all of the cobaltoan dolomite, cobaltoan calcite, and arsenates. I have not seen arsenates from the Agoudal-Est mine yet.
