"(Coming from Plouesnan). Exit Morlaix on the north side on the D769 until Penzé. Exiting the latter locality take the parallel road on the left leading to Pont-Eon. One will encounter a quarry yielding anglesite, cerussite, covellite, galena, pyrite, and quartz." [Belot, 1978]

Old quarry, 2 kilometers from Penzé viaduct.

Quartz vein in mica schists.
