Radětice is a village approximately 4 km from Vrančice. Mining started here in the 13th century or even earlier.

Ag-bearing hydrothermal veins (quartz, carbonates, siderite) cut granitic rocks of the Srednechechskoe pluton.

Radětice and Vrančice were operated under one management but they were separate sites. The pit in Radětice was opened in 1971 and had 10 floors. On the level of the 8th floor, in 1981 a cross-cut level, 3.8 km in length was driven, which connected Radětice with the Alexander pit in Vrančice.

All mining activities stopped in 1990.
