Locality type:Quarry
Köppen climate type:Dfb : Warm-summer humid continental climate


Inactive quarry/open-pit mine with Au-Ag-Pb-Zn mineralisation. Currently (2011) drilling and exploration work is being done.
The open pit is situated in the central part of the deposit. It was created in 1982 and operated until early 2007.

Intermediate-sulfidation Au–Ag epithermal system hosted in propylitic altered andesitic rocks covered by Cretaceous and Neogene sediments (Apopei et al. 2016).


The Certej project, which apparently involves a new(?), nearby(?) open pit, is operated by the company Eldorado Gold. Mining is scheduled to start in 2013.

Located just SW of Bocşa Mare (a village), N of Bocşa Mică, NW of Sacarîmb and NE of Certeju de Sus (a commune to which Bocşa Mare belongs). The nearest nearby city is Deva.
