Geological Spine of Albas Village

Albas, Aude, Occitanie, France


Small village in the Corbières area.
West of the village (and east of Plateau de Lacamp) a few mines were worked for iron from 18th century and after.
South-west of the village at the border with Cascastel area another iron mine (la Mayré) was in activity at 18th century then at 20th century.
Gypsum occurrences can be found around the village, eventually in red schists.
Some bipyramidal quartz crystals shine in the sun in vineyards.
