    Hello minegoers
    for this underground quarry I couldn't find any history.
    I'ts located south east of St.Dizier
    and I found it while searching for another one, not accidently, prepared with some geodatas from a net map.
    Doing research this way, with only a little bit of informations,
    you can find nothing, shite, uninteresting, a bit, but also something good.
    You follow geodatas but also your eyes, walk through bushes, fields and mud.
    You find your target is a museum site, a small open quarry,
    a refilled dump, just a 3meter chalk mine or this from this report, or maybe bigger.
    I followed my next data when coming from Rinval visitors mine,
    walked crossfield, fence and forest,
    and successfully euphoric staring on my new find from above,
    realized I had mixed datas and found my visitors mine from hillside
    ------
    this mine is not big nor small, let's see photos

    close to a way in a forest, no bushcrawl, yes!

    I am lazy, but in this case I didn't even find the mine mentioned.
    Also it's difficult, since the informative webpages are in french (which I can not read) and then I had to create a story in english, which is not my native language

    Nice pics, with nice old graffs.

    If it can be useful, i've got this:

    Full size image

    It says that the quarry was still active in 1967, property of Albert Martin.


    There might be more information in that old book (hard to find):

    [​IMG]
    Speleo L n°7 (1975), by F. Devaud.

    I will ask my friends if someone have it.

    interesting
    I can not see your first pic, it doesn't show, but your infos go into a good direction.
    My source names as source:

    Fédération Française de Spéléologie – CDS de la Meuse (2012)
    Mise à jour Inventaire Cavité 55 (2004)
    Devaux (1975b)
    --------
    my problem when trying to follow such sources is, that I do not speak French.
    there exist a lot of interesting webpages or pdf documents from officals or regional sources,
    but I understand only a bit, even using google webpage translate

    I found this mine myself by using geodatas from a netsource, nice thing that.
    I don't like Lambert + I don't like my Garmin GPS not working with Lambert
