Ancient mine workings near Soumont village.

Mineralization is cavities in a brecciated layer in Cambrian dolomites. Nacrite formed together with authigenic quartz and barite. The barite mineralization is related to underbasinal fluid discharge and trapping in the karstified basement during late Permian extensional tectonic regime that affected the Lodève Basin.
