Mines des Malines


This huge stratiform deposit, located under the Pic d'Anjeau Mountain, is the biggest lead-zinc deposit in France. Most mineralizations are found within karstic cavities dug in Cambrian dolomites and Bathonian limestones.
Known since Roman times, it was operated from 1885 in several mines by the Pennaroya company (formerly called Metaleurop; Recyclex today) which produced 1.000.000 tons of ore until 1993. Today, all adits are closed but some large dumps still remain.
