I noticed longer time ago, that the schema of the localities (shafts) in the Příbram area on mindat is wrong and confusing. So I did new scheme of the localities in the area (below). It is possible, there will be necessary to do some minor changes in the future, but it is much better than the existing situation.

Kind regards
Mining museum Příbram

1) Hvožďany is not part of the Příbram deposit
2) Mokrsko is another deposit
3) Rožmitál pod Třemšínem does not belong in the Příbram area

Right schema should be:

Příbram ore area (Příbram)
BřezovéHory ore region
-----------BřezovéHory deposit
--------------------Anna mine
--------------------Vojtěch mine (Adalbert mine)
--------------------Marie mine
--------------------Prokop mine
--------------------Ševčín mine (Franz Josef mine)
--------------------Drkolnov mine
-----------Černojamské (Black pits) deposit
--------------------Lill mine
--------------------Jarošovka mine
--------------------Ferdinand mine
------------Bohutín deposit
---------------------Řimbaba mine
---------------------František mine
---------------------Rudolf mine (25.February mine, Štefánik mine)
---------------------Štěpán mine

Out of the BřezovéHory ore region, but still in close area (and in the same ore-bearing area), are several smaller old mines with nice mineral founds
-----Sádek mine
-----Anna Marie mine (Reichenstrost mine)
-----Obecnice mine
-----Kozičín mine
-----Květná mine
-----Narysov mine
Nová Hospoda
-----Nová Hospoda mine

Příbram smelter

I am working on fixing this but will take me a while.

Hi Pavel,

that sure was a lot of work.

I wonder if there are some references or sources that you could name as a basis for your scheme.
Not necessarily printed references, it may also be your personal experience like (something like "I've been working underground there for 20 years and know the mines").

You know, the scheme that is there right now has been done by someone else, and probably with some reason behind it, so we should give a reason for changing it.
Pavel Skacha February 15, 2012 05:22PM
Dear Debie,

fine thanks.

Dear Amir,

thanks and understood.
Of course that somebody can make another scheme (or better fix some minor things on it), but i hope that this is right by 99,9%...

I unfortunately did not work in Příbram mines (but visited a part of them), but I am working as a mineralogist in Mining museum Příbram, living here for 5 years and studying this locality for about 17 years. I consulted this scheme with my friends which are all long time collectors of Příbram minerals and with one of the best geologist of the Příbram uranium mines. Hope this is sufficient :)

Kind regards

Thanks, Pavel!
Pavel Skacha February 15, 2012 05:28PM
And please divide the words with large letter in the half of the words like BřezovéHory (should be Březové Hory) and DalekéDušníky (right should be Daleké Dušníky). I lost the gap somewhere. Sorry for this.

Many thanks
Kind regards

I've made all the changes except the last one (Cetyně Smolotely – Horní Líšnice) as I'm slightly confused on this one as we already have Smolotely-Horní Líšnice Gold District is this not the same ?

Also like to check with you Prokop mine as this is listed under Dubenec & under Březové Hory deposit, are they 2 different mines or the same one ?

Many thanks for your work on this Pavel.

Kind regards

Dear Debie,

thanks for your message.
Cetyně is solitary locality (old and new mining works for base-metal raw)

Smolotely - Horní Líšnice is the gold district you have just on mindat.

Concerning the Prokop shaft, it is just like you wrote, there is one Prokop shaft in the Březové Hory (base-metal) and another one Prokop shaft near Dubenec (gold).

Kind regards

Done - Thanks for clarifying.
Pavel Skacha February 23, 2012 05:17PM
Hello Debbie,

there are still some mistakes in the schema

1)The Krásná Hora deposit is before the Příbram locality in the schema, it is totally another locality (about 30 km out of Příbram)

2) on the end of the scheme are still several "other" localities
Petrackova hora
Mokrsko Au deposit
Rožmitál pod Třemšínem

This localities are out of the Příbram ore region

3) there is "Příbram District" on the end of the scheme. It would be better to erase it probably, or give it before "Příbram"

Kind regards
