Metallic mineral resources of the Karpatho-Balkan metallogenic province: Eastern Serbian Sector (general review)

By Rade Jelenkovic, Todor Serafimovski and Goran Tasev


At the territory of Eastern Serbia, that represents only one small part cf the Karpalho-Balkanic metallogenic province (ESSCBMP-East Serbian sector of the Carpatho-Balkan metallogenic province), were located numerous mineral deposits (Cu, Au, U, Fe, Pb-Zn etc.), very important from the economic point of view. Their formation and spatial distribution are connected with complex processes of structural, geological and metallogenic reshaping of the territory of spatial deposition, primary during baikal, hercyian and alpine metallogenic epoch. Of special interest are deposits of alpine and hercyian age connected with hydrothermal solutions and magmatic complexes, formed during complex processes of subduction and intracontinental rifting. Generally, all deposits are classified in few metallogenic zones characterized with specific associations of elements and genesis: Ridanj-Krepoljina, Neresnica-Beljanica, Bor and Porec-Stara Planina metallogenic zone
