Polygene deposit with vein-type Bi-Co-Ni mineralizations near the intersection of fault zones in amphibolites, gneisses and micaschists with sulphide- and arsenide-bearing strata. The deposit was worked from both the Styrian and the Salzburgian side, and the material on the dumps on both sides originates from both provinces as well.

Regional Geology

This information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This data will improve over time as more accurate maps and data sets are added.

Paleozoic252.17 - 541 MaPaleozoic intrusive and metamorphic terranes

Intrusive and metamorphic terranes

Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.
