Stacy, North Carolina is located in Carteret County, bewteen Oyster Creek and Nelson Bay. It was formely known (through 1888) as Piney Point. No information on mineralogy, though someone from NC should have some data.

nothing yet on the Hungarian localities or on St. Brigitta, Germany, though there are probably several churches with that name.

Karl, their are titanium and iron bearing deposits in Carteret county, North Carolina. That area is mostly surfical deposits put down in the Quaternary era. It is sand, clay,gravel, and peat deposited in marine,fluvial,eolian,and lacustrine environments.Most of the area is less than 25 feet above sea level.The main deposit is just west of Morehead City. Hope this helps! Bruce Osborne

Hi Karl,

I suppose I could write in German now :-)

well, about St. Brigitta:

there is no independant mine with that name (from what I found), but I recognized that one pit near the St. Anna Mine in Wolfshagen (locality on mindat) is called St. Brigitta.

The St. Anna mine is an ancient copper mine, nowadays you can visit the mine (http://www.freudenstein-fundgrube.de). Under "Rundgang" it is stated that the museum is not just including the St. Anna mine, but also other small quarries, one of them the St. Brigitta quarry. That's the only St. Brigitta (quarry) I found. By the mid 1500's mainly silver, bismute, and cobalt ore were mined. In the early 1900's some wolframite was found in the St. Anna mine. On the webpage you can also find an e-mail address.

I hope that's what you were looking for.

I believe that "Oradha" should actually read "Oradea", a town in Bihor Co., north-western Romania, situated close to the Hungarian border. There definitely are mineral deposits in that area.

Both locations are in Romania now, the first is Alsórákos (Racos), the second must be Óradna (Oradna, now Rodna). Both have old mines.

Thanks for all of the information all.

Would you be able to enter these locations into the database?
