Name(s) in local language(s):
Mines des Monterniers, Lantignié, Beaujeu, Rhône, Rhône-Alpes, France


These mines (closed in 1962) operated 6 veins composed of fluorite, quartz and baryte hosted in a granite. They are famous for the secondary minerals of lead, especially for the wulfenite crystals.

The panel was administratively (and so artificially) separated in two concessions.
- the "Monterniers" concession
- The "grandes terres" concession

The "Monterniers concession" worked on 4 veins.
- Vein 1 (lower vein - filon du bas in french)
- Vein 2 (crossing the vein 3)
- vein 3, or middle vein
- vein 4, or upper vein (filon du haut) : the surface outcrop of this vein is located on a place called "grandes terres", witch gave the name of the second concession. this introduced a lot of confusion with the place-names!

The "Grandes terres" concession worked 3 veins
- the "grandes terres" vein
- the "brosses vein" (filon des brosses)
- the carnion vein, also called "Luans pit" (puits Luans) : this vein seems to be the west ending of the vein 1 worked by the other concession.

As we can see, this separation is purely administrative, and shouldn't be reproduced on mindat.


According to A. Chermette (famous french geologist who discovered these deposits in the 1920's), 3 mineralizing stages are known:
- The initial filling consists of massive purple/green fluorite with a brown-red jasper (Triassic)
- The last filling consists of white/pink baryte with yellow/blue fluorite and some sulphides, especially galena. (Liassic)
- Then, meteoritic alteration of primary sulphides and formation of secondary minerals (Eocene?)
