Mežica belongs to the Mississippi-Valley-Type (MVT) lead-zinc ore deposits. It is located on the eastern edge of the Karavanke mountains (NE Slovenia) and is believed to be genetically related to two other Karawankian lead-zinc deposits, Bleiberg and Raibl. The ore bodies were metasomatically emplaced into Triassic carbonate rocks by an injection of solvothermal ore solutions into a preexisting, possibly karstified system of subvertical cross-alpine faults. The majority of the ore bodies is discordant along the major fault lines, with minor interstratified ore bodies along the more soluble layers of the host rock. The main ore minerals are galena and sphalerite, while other sulphides occur in small quantities. Through the open system of faults, meteoric waters reached and oxidized the sulphide ores down to extreme depths of probably more than 2 km. During oxidation, most of the interesting mineral associations were formed. The most abundant mineral in the oxidation zone is definitely wulfenite, which has even been mined as a molybdenum ore. Other common oxidation minerals include anglesite, cerussite, hemimorphite, smithsonite, and descloizite. At present, only 30 different minerals are known from the Mežica mine, but there are many more that are waiting to be discovered.

Centuries of mining history have left a unique mark on life in the upper Meža valley. Over 350 ore bodies were mined over the 64 km² wide mountainous area east of Peca Mountain. During the 350-years-long history of mining, over 1,000 km of tunnels, used for ore tracking and transportation, were excavated together with several hundred kilometres of stopes and other mine workings on the existing ore bodies. Nowadays, a large number of surface pits and more than 300 mine adits are still visible in the upper sections of the Meža valley ore deposit. The highest mine workings are located just under the Peca peak at an elevation of 2060 m, while the ore has been followed all the way down to a depth of 240 m above sea level. Mežica is one of the world's richest wulfenite deposits and most of the major mineralogical collections or museums have at least one specimen from this classic Slovenian locality.

Located 55 km northeast of Ljubljana.

The Topla deposit is a nearby, smaller deposit of the same type.

There are several hundreds of published professional and scientific references related to the Mežica Mines. Here, only those are listed that contain valuable information on the mineralogy of this locality. Further references are cited therein.
