"(Coming from Saint-Bonnet). North of Gap on the 'Route Napoléon' [N85]. Take the D23 north of Saint-Bonnet.
- South on the D23B [currently the D123] one encounters Les Infournas and in the Adroit Valley, there is a graphite deposit.
- In the hamlet of Héritières, there are old workings with azurite, chalcopyrite, and malachite.
- In the hamlet of Le Roy, on the right riverbank of the Ru de Beyrou, there is chalcopyrite, pyrite, and sphalerite."

[Belot, 1978]
