There are two sites called Orlik - one is this site named "Štůly" in original name and its close to Orlik castle ruin. Beware that there is also Orlik Mt. (sometimes called Čejovský kopec) which is located couple kilometers to NE from Štůly.
There are dozens of small mining holes after medieval gold prospection and small-scale mining. At the site Štůly are the biggest works in this area, which are about 150m long line of pits which remained after gold bearing layer. Beware that visiting mining pits is dangerous, especially chiseling from unstale walls or small roof relicts. Finding any stuff is pretty difficult.
Moldanicum / NW Moravia.
Stratiform metamorphogenic type of deposit (formed by the action of relicts of the solutions which pervaded rocks during metamorphic processes).
The mineralization process is related with Variscan regional and contact metamorphism, with mobilization and redistribution of gold derived from metamorphosed volcanosedimentary rocks.
Quartz lenses and stratiform veins with native gold and scheelite in metamophosed rocks (sillimanite-biotite gneisses, skarns and quartzites of the Moldanubian, near the contact with the Variscan pluton).
