Abstract (in english)
   An unknown ancient ore district Kopec near Brtníky was found in the course of our geological mapping (see Opletal - Novák, 1993). It occurs close to the Lusatian Fault, which separates Upper Cretaceous sediments from granitoids of the Lusatian Pluton. The Lusatian Fault is actually an overthrust fault in this area (dipping at 75), with a boundin of Jurassic limestones cropping out on it. The ancient ore district straddles the Czech-German border and continues into german territory. We have described 11 adits whith dumps, about a hundred of mine heaps and found pyrite, chalcopyrite, malachite, dolomite, ankerite, limonite, calcite, fluorite and rock crystal. The ore minerals are associated either with the limestones partially affected by metasomatism or with the crushed zones developed in the granitoids of the Lusatian Pluton. The adits and mine heaps parallel tectonized boundaries between the Lusatian granodiorite and the Brtníky and Rumburk granites.
   Silver-bearing lead ores were probably mined at this locality. The mineralization highlights the metallogenic role of the Lusatian Fault. Another, still undescribed deposit Tomášov is located 2.5 km SW of Mikulášovice, also near the Czech-german border. It is associated with a silicified mylonitized zone running parallel to a dolerite dyke. The 5-10 m thick dolerite dyke in the Lusatian biotite granodiorite strikes ENE-WSW and was exploited by adits and pits. Except for pyrite and limonite no other mineralization has been found. It remains unclear whether gold or merely iron ore (limonite) were mined here
