Tl-rich hydrothermal stratiform deposit in Triassic dolomitic limestones.
Located in the Écrins National Park ('Parc national des Écrins'). Mineral collecting is not allowed.

Note on the mineral list: Johan & Mantienne (2000) also describe four new phases:
- Pb9Ag(Sb,As)13S29 with optical properties similar to jamesonite, with a monoclinic unit-cell with a = 17.640, b = 18.464, c = 3.967 A, beta = 90°48', V = 1292 A 3, Z = 1, Dcalc = 5.51
- a phase Tl(As,Sb)10S16 that is X-ray amorphous
- a phase Tl(Sb,As)7S11 that is weakly anisotropic with reflectivity close to chabournéite
- a phase Ag2SbAsS4, representing a reaction product between smithite and chabournéite

Additional gangue minerals include albite, apatite, chlorite, fluorite, graphite, microcline, orthoclase, rutile, sericite, tourmaline and zircon. Most of them are described in Mantienne's Ph.D. work (1974).

Note on locality name: The name of the nearest village is spelled "La Chapelle en Valgaudemar" by the authorities of the local municipality. An alternate spelling with "Valgaudémar" can also be found in various sources, although it does not match the valley name: Valgaudemar (spelled Valgodemard in the names of the two villages Saint-Maurice-en-Valgodemard and Saint-Jacques-en-Valgodemard).

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Miocene : 18.3 Ma to 15.2 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded below and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
