"(Coming from Blesle). North of Massiac, follow the N9 until 'Le Babory' and take a left on the D81. This road then becomes the D109 to Leyvaux where there are numerous old antimony workings with arsenopyrite, stibnite, and pyrite, in particular, the dumps of the 'La Forge Mine' [https://www.mindat.org/loc-44005.html] with arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite, covellite, marcasite, quartz, rutile, pyrite, and wolframite. Before arriving at Leyvaux at the place called 'Le Breuil', in the Chavignage ravine there is arsenopyrite, berthierite, chalcopyrite, marcasite, pyrite, quartz, and sphalerite." [Belot, 1978]
