THE MINES OF SAINT LAURENT-LE-MINIER

Saint-Laurent-le-Minier owes its name to the gold and silver mines, exploited since the Middle Ages.

The existence of these mines is proven by the underground passages or galleries cut in the rock, as well as by the old documents which mention them.

Other ores such as copper, silver lead, iron, zinc were mined and processed on St-Laurent. For example, at a place called "La Papèterie", 500 m from the village, along the road towards Ganges, there was a metal factory. The activity spanned from 1857 to the early 1950s.
