Kateřina Coal Mine, Radvanice, Trutnov, Hradec Králové Region, Bohemia, Czech Republic

Name(s) in local language(s): Důl Kateřina, Královéhradecký Kraj
 
Burning dump pile of the Kateřina colliery in Radvanice (Eastern Bohemia) - Intrasudetic Basin, Odolov Formation, Jívka Member - Carboniferous (Stefan A - Stefan B).
Now rehabilitated and safe, no more possibilities of mineral finds.

The site is known of unique rare-metal-minerals. Galena crystals from a reducing-type assemblage reached 4 cm!

Sejkora et al. (2002) mention also an interesting "GAF" phase - a pseudomorphic greenockite-anhydrite-fluorite mixture.
