One of the two most important sources of top quality vanadinite specimens in the Mibladen area (Praszkier 2013). An elongated plain 2 km x 300 m large. The Coud'a workings are divided into 3 segments called (from west to east), "Mohamadine" workings, "Midelt" workings and "Mibladen" workings, respectively. A spectacular, large system of vanadinite pockets was discovered here in June 2001.
