Old galleries in the ravines of Cerisier, Figuière and Les Bergiès, on the left bank of La Roudoule river, near Léouvé.
Copper mineralization (2500 tons Cu) in sandstones and pelites (Lower Trias and Upper Permian).

"At the place called Le Cerisier there is an old mine with azurite, chalcopyrite, chalcocite, native copper, enargite, goethite, hematite, limonite, malachite, pyrite, quartz, and siderite." [Belot, 1978]
