The Sala nr 10 licence area covers 1,049ha and is in Vӓstmanland County, southern Sweden. The licence is prospective for lead-zinc-silver mineralisation and is situated 200m west of the former Sala silver mine.

Sulphide mineralisation in the area is carbonate hosted, occurring dominantly as silver-bearing lead sulphide (galena), and zinc sulphide (sphalerite), and to a lesser extent as complex antimonides, sulphosalts and native silver.
