Abstract (in english)
   Specific features of Variscan metallogeny in the Krušné hory (Erzgebirge) region of the Bohemian Massif are determinated by its position within the geotectonic zonal structure of the European Variscan belt. Even of the fundamental principles explaining this structure proposed in the twenties of this century remain valid, there are differences in interpretation of zone boundaries and their continuities. Thus, the stratigraphical, lithological, metamorphic, structural, tectonic and metallogenetical as well as geophysical features of individual zones in the northern branch of the European Variscan system are compared with a particular emphasis on the position of the Saxothuringian zone as a site of tin-bearing plutons.
   The similary of the gravity picture of the Krušné hory (Erzgebirge) in the Czech Republic and Germany on one side and of the Cornwall region in UK on the other, along with the main features of magmatism and postmagmatic development suggest a similary in the geotectonic development. This might have been possibly influenced by the mantle heat and fluids comparable to the effect of mantle plumes in cratonic continetal settings. The preference of uranium mineralization to the Moldanubian zone of the variscan fold belt is explained by mobilization of U from detrial U-bearing minerals in the sedimentary protolith derived from denuded U-enriched Precambrian continents
