Galleries located on the right bank of a ravine, West of Léouvé hamlet.
Copper mineralization in conglomerates, sandstones, and pelites (Lower Trias).

"(Coming from Puget-Théniers). North of the latter city on the D16 until Léouvé where this road ends. There is a path leading to the Col de Roua and close to the grounds of an old farm there is azurite, bornite, chalcopyrite, graphite, malachite, and quartz." [Belot, 1978]
