Old lead-zinc-iron-calamine-mines just north of Oneux.
Galerie de Chienheid and 5 shafts. The shafts are still visible in the landscape as small hills. The adit is collapsed (fieldwork 19 April 2009).

Note: The three shafts south of Oneux belong to the Rocheux mine (see http://www.mindat.org/loc-312.html).
