Little village next to the road nationale 75. The ground of the area does not conceal valuable metals but the opening of the Grenoble-Veyne line in 1878 with the establishment of a station allowed to convey gold and money to be transformed into ingots. The water of the torrent actuated a paddle wheel which provided the driving force. The factory ceased its activity at the beginning of the war of 1914-1918. Only remains nowadays a part of the chimney.
