To the southwest of bresnay, between the end of the XIX century and the beginning of the XX century, Les Jardinats, Les bergerats and Montmalard were the object of various attempts to extract antimony.
Finally abandoned in 1908, it is at Montmalard that there are still some traces of this activity.
It is still possible to find a few minerals in a dirt road and the ditches that borders it.
