Abstract (in english)
   The source areas of Cenozic sediments of the Ohře (Eger) Rift subbasins in the S and the Leipzig and Lausitz Lowland area (comp. fig.1) can be substantiated by heavy mineral signals. The occurence of topaz derived from exposed late-Variscan magmatites (Fichtelgebirge-Erzgebirge/Krušné Hory in the N; Kaiserwald/Slavkovský les - Karlsbad/Karlovy Vary massif in the S) is very diagnostic (comp. fig. and 3). it is apparent from the stratigraphic record of the topaz bearing Cenozoic sediments (comp. fig.2 and 3) that intense denudation of the Fichtelgebirge - Erzgebirge/Krušné hory source areas began in the late Eocene and lasted till the middle Miocene (comp. fig. 4, 5). Plio-/Pleistocene sediments occur only along the NNW-SSE trending Marienbad/Mariánské Lázně fault (comp. fig.5). The input of detritus to the basins seems to be mainly under tectonic control.
   Laterally and temporally differentiated uplift to the Erzgebirge/Krušné Hory fault block subunits started earliest in the W (late Eocene; comp. fig. 4). Its northward tilting as a coherent unit of present configuration and the development of its southern escarpment came into existence since the early Miocene (-20 Ma; comp. fig. 4,5). Plio-/Pleistocene uplift may have caused intensified erosion and long distance transport of topaz as a marker mineral reaching as far as the eastern Netherlands
