Carreau Rodolphe

The Rodolphe Tile is a former site of the Potash mines, a place of memory, transmission of heritage and mining culture of the potash basin.

During this visit, they will show you reconstructions of the bottom workings, the 2 headframes and the 2 extraction machines from 1912 and 1928, perfectly restored, surface installations that allowed the treatment of the ore and a complete and unique set of mining machines in France going from the 1950s to 2004.
