Personalized exploration tour in the Saint-Louis Eisenthür mine


L'Aventure des Mines (association ASEPAM)

For more than 35 years, the "Association Spéléologique pour l'Etude et la Protection des Anciennes Mines" (ASEPAM) has been working to preserve and promote the mining, geological and mineralogical heritage of the Val d'Argent. This mining history is retraced in the permanent exhibition "Les Chemins de l'Argent" presented at L'Aventure des Mines, the association's premises. Throughout the year, ASEPAM's organizers and volunteers offer visitors the opportunity to discover two silver mines: the Saint-Louis Eisenthür mine and the Gabe Gottes mine, two underground routes that were opened for mining in the 16th century and have been preserved just as the miners left them. Specific events are regularly organized (historical reenactment in May, special Christmas visits...), in addition to the archaeological work site taking place every year in July.
