Located near the road to Clausis chapel, near Torrent de Pinilière ravine.
Native copper and bornite mineralization at the contact of serpentinites and calcareous schists.
Extraction of copper began in the Paleolithic and stopped in the 1960s.

Archeological site, collecting rocks and minerals is completely forbidden.
