Name(s) in local language(s):Toscana, Italia


For about 30 centuries, Tuscany has been one of the most important mining regions of Italy producing a large variety of resources, including pyrite, iron, base metals, geothermal steam, and several industrial minerals, ornamental stones, and building materials.

The Tuscan metallogenic province includes the Fe oxides deposits of Elba Island, the pyrite (± bayrite ± Fe oxides) deposits of southern Tuscany and Apuane Alps, the base- and precious-metals deposits of the “Colline Metallifere” district (southern Tuscany), the Hg deposits of the Monte Amiata area, the Sb deposits of the Capalbio-Monti Romani belt. The newest addition to the metallogenic framework of Tuscany, is the discovery in the mid-1980s of “Carlin-type” epithermal gold mineralisation. Most of the Au prospects, of limited economic importance, are closely related to Sb deposits.
