At the places called La Grange, La Joie, and Tirely [https://www.mindat.org/loc-235536.html], on the dumps of old mining operations, there is bournonite, galena, pyrite, quartz, and sphalerite." [Belot, 1978]

Former lead and zinc mine started in 1888 and closed in 1909. This mine operated 3 main veins called "filon Alice", "filon Saint-Louis" and "filon Argentiol". Today, all adits are collapsed but some dumps and outcrops remain.
