North part of La Capelle Bleys leucogranite : Leucogranite apical zone with silicified and muscovitized, with syn-/postcrystalline deformations.
This part of the granite is rich in numerous microgranite, aplite, pegmatite veins and quartz-scheelite veins.
Three mineralization phases are known :
- Intragranitic scheelite with secondary muscovite
- Scheelite-ferberite-cassiterite-quartz veins
- Scheelite in diaclases

While searching for those old works during 2010, one quartz vein delivered an interesting suite of tungsten minerals like wulfenite, stolzite & raspite (Gayraud et al., 2011).
