Small Cu-U deposits within the Upper Permian Val Gardena Sandstone (Italian: Arenaria di Val Gardena, German: Gröden-Formation), NE of the San Lugano Pass, a few metres above the limit of the ignimbrites of the Athesian Volcanic Group (Lower Permian). In the Cu- and U-rich mineralised level, located at the base of the Val Gardena Sandstone, the major ore concentrations are found in deposits of carbon frustules and especially inside coalified trunks up to metric sizes, impregnated with framboidal pyrite, covellite, tennantite and uraninite, and surrounded by evident colored halos of supergenic minerals.
In this environment some oxalates (moolooite, the second world occurrence of middlebackite and the new species fiemmeite) have been recently identified.
