"Southwest of Argenton-sur-Creuse on the N20. After 4 km, go right at the fork in the road onto the D1 until Saint-Benoit-du-Sault and take the D36 to the right. Baryte, fluorite, hematite, and manganese at the mine close to Bel Rio." [Belot, 1978]

"Brosse: (Chaillac). See the itinerary of the latter locality. Take the road south leading to Brosse castle. At 'la Redoutière', old quarries with baryte, fluorite, galena, and hematite." [Belot, 1978]
