Old fluorite mine in the gneisses of the Tanneron mountains.
Found in near 1850, closed in 1973.

"(Coming from Fayence). On can reach Garrot following the D562 northeast of Draguignan. After 30 km, to the right, one arrives at La Rouvière before reaching Bagnols-en-Forêt on the D4. From there a road on the left leads to the mine with baryte, fluorite, galena, and quartz." [Belot, 1978]
