Pb, Zn, Ag, F and Ba ore deposits contained in a silicic upper Triassic dolomitic rock directly over the Hercynian rocks and located at the border of the "Bassin de Paris".
Lead and silver had been extracted mainly between 1400 and 1600 and perhaps before, a main Roman road passed through Chitry les Mines. Mining works have been near the ground floor less than 20 meters deep with holes and little galleries in a very large area.
Mineralized rocks extracted during work road around the village in 2012. These works have also rediscovered an old gallery.
