Hydrothermal quartz-carbonate veins with Co, Ni and Cu sulphides hosted in complex of metamorphic rocks, mostly gneisses and amphibolites. The most significant mining activity in Dobšiná area is connected with the exploitation of cobalt and nickel ores from this vein system. Mining of rich cobalt and nickel ores starts there in 1780 and ceased in 1897.
