"(Coming from Couarec). In the granitic layers one will find, besides granite, arsenopyrite, bournonite, chalcopyrite, galena, pyrite, quartz, and sphalerite." [Belot, 1978]

The B.R.G.M. [Bureau des Recherches Géologiques et Minières] estimated lead reserves in the vein to be 200,000 metric tonnes at between 70 and 150m depth [Lukas, 1978].
