Name(s) in local language(s):


Iron gossan in the volcano-sedimentary formation. These volcano-sedimentary rocks contains a lot of pyrite deposits in stratiform layers or in big veins. In the Gallic era and after in the XIX century, the gossan has been used until the pyrite zone has been reached. Some few concentrations in Pb, Zn, Cu, As and Bi have been identified by geochemical BRGM campaign in the 1970s.
