First french uranium mine, working a hydrothermal deposit with quartz-barite-fluorite veins. The ore was a massif pitchblende with an extraordinarily high uranium content of 31.2%. From 1948 to its closure in 1957, around 150 tons of pure uranium were recovered. Located at La Crouzille, 5 km SSW of Razès.
