This locality: is wrong placed to the territory of Romania. Also-Sajó is
old hungarian name for this locality: References used in this wrong
locality refers to Nižná Slaná which is well know locality of evansite, mercury and cinnabar in Slovakia.
I think that this Romanian locality should be deleted.
Best wishes

Hi all,

Pic 430292 - 293 and 295 is not rutile from Kipushi.
The mineral was mislabeled since found.
There is no rutile in Kipushi.
The specimens are probably from the Kinyanfumbe deposit.

I hope this helps.

Take care and best regards.

Have you been to the Kinyanfumbe deposit? Is it the name of a mine? Do you know where it is, e.g. the nearest town?

I can find no record of the place and all attributions to this deposit seem to stem from your post this March.

Grateful to learn more.
