Quartz-apatite veins with uranium mineralization and increased content of REE (= P-REE-U mineralization) occur north of Čučma village in metatuffs of rhyolite of the Bystrý Potok Formation. The longest vein is parallel to a quartz-stibnite vein exploited in the past in Gabriela adit and shaft. Quartz-apatite veins in metatuffs of rhyolite occur also on the slopes of Majerská Dolina valley.
