Slovak Mining Exploration
- Anyone traveling to Slovakia this year can keep their eye open for
mineral exploration in Slovakia. At least one company is looking for
uranium, molybdenum and gold in several areas. Just 13 km north west
of Kosice is the Jahodna deposit of uranium with molybdenum intended
to be a by product of the processing.
Additional uranium deposits are being explored at the Kozie Chrbty
district which hosts Svabovce and Spissky Stiavnik deposits.
Noveska Huta (Spisska Nova Ves) deposit evidently has been highly
worked in the past both with open pit mines and underground mining,
but is promising for new operations. It looks like the deposits
extend under the Slovensky Raj area.
Gold investigation returns to the Kremnica area. Another reference
