Belgian geologist and supervisor of the coal mines at Bascoup and Mariemont near Morlanwelz in the Hainaut province of Belgium, who studied that region. During the period 1863-1896 he and Francois Cornet published a number of books and papers describing fossils and geological structures found near Mons. They devised theories - now generally accepted - as to the geological history of the region. After Cornet's death in 1887, Briart continued to write alone. He died in 1898 at Morlanwelz. The mineral Briartite is named for his grandson, Gaston Briart.
