Mining sites around Morzine

I'm going to Morzine in August and was wondering if anyone knew of any mines around the area that could be entered. I know there is the working slate mine locally and I will be contacting them to see if they can do a tour, but other than that does anyone have any other suggestions if anything exisits at all - thanks.
 
Hi Mike,

My son lives just down the road from Morzine so he may have access to local info as his parents-in-law have lived in the area most of their lives. He's away for a few days but I'll ask him next week, so you never know.

Regards

Jim
 
Hi Mike, I have bits of stuff, as some is personal info about the slate mine and contacting the guy who operates it I'll email you via @mineexplorer (can't fathom whether there is a private messaging thing on UKC) when I get a contact number, he only speaks French I'm told, tu parle bien francais?, I certainly don't and understanding conversation is just about beyond me.

It's possible there may be other venues as well, not that sure about the "mines d'or" though, in the area so I'll try and include that.
