Limestone quarry.
The wrinkled and fractured limestone contain calcite and dolomite. Exceptionally, there is also neo-formed quartz.

The quarry produces aggregates for public works, lime, sand, gravel and stones. It is in operation since the early 1900s. It is currently being held by the League of Careers Bocahut which ensures the extraction and marketing of all products. The mining site is fenced, supervised and access is forbidden without permission of the management.
