Johan Netchacovitch posted some interesting information on his website. It concerns a new publication by Stépahnie Buttegeg which is "an extensive 68-page dossier on the mines of Rennes-les-Bains. It is far from a tourist survey and it documents [information] which is not well known - there is a folder on Pierre Plantard & Roc Negro and his perpetual license in the village cemetery, plans from the brochure "The Circle" by Thomas Plantard [regarding] the resum[ing] of mining surveys in 1987 and which evoke a "round temple", archives of the Dubosc & Fleury which completes the research, and finally, the mining sites are presented.
Another commentator - l'Oeil du Sphinx - wrote:
"....we must recognize that Buttegeg did a great job, combining research on ancient documents with field investigations. She proves it once again with the Legendary Ancient Mines of Rennes-les-Bains (In Search of Lost Secret, Legends of Oc, April 2013). It offers us a very thorough history of the mining of the region balnorennaise review, with, as backdrop, research by Pierre Plantard. He will take [buy?] the property on the territory of the commune (see Proceedings of the Symposium of Studies and Research in Rennes-le-Château in 2012 , EODS, 2013), questioning the motives that led to the alleged pathological liar buying plots at the site of his 'delusions'. After tracing the history of excavations of Dubosc and Fleury, she points the finger to an article attributed to Thomas Plantard in The Circle (1987) referring to the existence of a "Round Temple" in the basement place. The investigations do not provide conclusive evidence of this "discovery", but the researcher presents a whole host of very disturbing elements on the subject. Stephanie thank you for this very important contribution."
