Gold from the Jílové u Prahy ore district (Central Bohemian Masiff)

On the 21st of May SGA Student Chapter Prague organized excursion to the historical gold mine located within the gold-bearing district Jílové Belt (located near Prague). We have visited historical adit Václav which led us directly to the Pepř mine. In this adit we had a chance to observe quartz stockworks with a little amounts of gold. During the mine visit we were able to collect some samples of gold-bearing quartz and also samples of scheelite mineralization from the Tobola vein. Some lucky students have even samples with small flakes of gold.

After the mine visit we have spent some time at the Museum of gold located at the city Jílové u Prahy.
Whole excursion was led by Dr. Pavel Škácha.
