Ancient Cu-Ag-Pb mine, located below the road connecting Saint-Luc to Chandolin, NNE of Fusette mine and ENE of Termino mine.
The mineralised vein (consisting of "fahlore", chalcopyrite, pyrite, and minor galena in quartz gangue) is no more accessible.
Today, mineral specimens are mainly found in the surroundings the forge building, where the mined ore was likely dressed by hammering.
