A former fluorite mine located near Marsanges, 6.5 km SSW of Langeac. Started in 1830 for the antimony extraction but quickly shifted to the fluorite extraction, this mine worked several large veins consisting mainly of fluorite and quartz, hosted in gneisses. This deposit, which was one of the biggest in France, was mined until 1975 by the Pechiney company (SECME) which produced 930,000 tons of fluorite and until 1977 by P. Lebrat. The finest fluorite specimens of Haute-Loire come from this famous deposit. Today, all mine entries are closed or collapsed but some large dumps still remain near some former adits. Note that the map below shows the headquarters but the exploitation work went on the mountainside above.

According to J.-J. Périchaud (1970), 4 mineralizing stages are known:

1) faulting of gneisses then grey quartz and sulphides (pyrite, arsenopyrite, stibnite ...) deposits (during Stephanian/Permian)

2) further enlargement of the veins and large filling by purple and/or green (octahedral or massive) fluorite with quartz (fluids at 145°C during Triassic / Lower Lias).

3) deposits (in vugs) of blue/yellow/colorless cubic fluorite with sulphides (chalcopyrite, pyrite, bournonite, galena, sphalerite...) and quartz, siderite, dolomite, baryte, calcite...

4) In the upper parts of the veins, alteration of sulphides and deposits of secondary minerals (chalcanthite, cerussite, goethite...)

Apart from the main vein ("filon principal"), which was the biggest fluorite heap of the deposit (50 m in high, 70 m in length and 18 m in width, this heap resulting from crossing the Communal vein, Pastro vein and X vein), many other veins are known and were mined. Here are the largest:
- Le Communal (Costebois) vein: This vein is the longest vein of the deposit (600 m in length, 3 m in width). Its northern part was operated by P. Lebrat and its southern part by the Pechiney company.
- Marmeisse vein: the western vein of the deposit with the most abundant sulphides, especially galena and sphalerite.
- Pastro vein: the southern vein of the deposit, rich in stibnite.
- X vein and Y vein: two "small" veins (200 m in length, 1 m in width) next to the Pastro vein.
- Les Italiens vein: a vein west of the Costebois vein.
- n°5 vein and n°4 vein (in the lower levels): two veins east of the Costebois vein.
Most mineral specimens come from these veins which contain many vugs but some specimens were also found in the smallest veins.
