Abstract (in english)
   In the northern part of the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin, in the Lužické hory (Lausitzer Gebirge) and the environments of Česká Lípa since approx. 1550 till the end of the Thirty Years War and again from 1786 to the end of the 18th century iron ores ere mined and smelted. Till today there frequent remainder of these activities (mined-out ore veins, dumps, adits, shafts, slag dumps etc.) in the terrain are preserved (e.g. Děvín and Schächtenstein near Hamr, Havířský vrch at Doksy, Rolleberg near Rynoltice, etc.). In any one of these remainders no rest of the mined iron ore is preserved, differ the opinions about the character, the composition and the orogin of the ores idely.
   In the older (mainly German) literature the opinion developed gradually so, that the ores had been referred to as "Toneisenstein" (=clayeous ironstone) (Müller 1914, Zimmermann, 1923); newer papers in the Czech Republic, however, speak only about ferruginous sandstone impregnated with iron oxides and oxide-hydroxides or about ferruginous hardpans which may have been mined and smelted here
