Chemical composition of a manganese crust from Upper Cretaceous formations of the Briançon area in the French Alps, supplement to: Bourbon, Maurice; Fonteilles, Michael (1972): Présence de pyrosmalie et de rhodonite dans un horizon manganésifère oxyde du crétacé supérieur briançonnais. Bulletin de la Société française de Minéralogie et de Cristallographie, 95, 623-624


The described sample comes from an outcrop situated in the internal part of the Briançonnais area (Acceglio zone), on the right bank of the high Ubaye valley at 400 m North of the hamlet of Combe Brémond. Two levels of manganese rich and iron rich limestones have been studied and chemically analysed. Rhodonite and pyrosmalite minerals have been identified.
