The Golden Quadrangle, the ancient Romanian Au-Ag-Te deposits, are in the Metaliferi Mountains, a division of the Apuseni Mountains in Alba and Hunedoara Counties. The Apuseni district was defined by mining companies.

The gold mines just west of Brad are the western vertex. North east of Brad is Baia de Aries and its gold mines are the north east vertex. South and a little west of Baia de Aries is Zlatna being the third vertex. The fourth vertex is Sacaramb which is south of the mid point on the line between Brad and Zlatna. The quadrangle contains the mines of Rosia Montana and Bucium.

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Miocene : 12.78 ± 0.09 Ma to 12.71 ± 0.13 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded below and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
