"From Brest to Saint-Renan on the D5, continue until the locality and take the road to Trézien. South of the lighthouse towards the Pointe de Corsen [https://www.mindat.org/loc-270162.html] and in the rocks [there is] arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite, cassiterite, quartz, pyrite, pyrrhotite, and tennantite." [Belot, 1978]
