Gold mine active 1938-1943.
Restarted as Lapa mine by Agnico Eagle Mines Limited. It has a 6-year mine life expectancy (2009-2015/2016). High-grade ore.

Gold mineralization in zones of deformation within the Piché Group volcanic rocks. Gold occurs in quartz veins, within tabular zones or in biotite-altered zones.

Located about 11 km east of the LaRonde gold mine, in the Rivière-Héva municipality, and 49 kilometres west of the Goldex mine.
