Summary: In the North Croatian research work was on granites,
migmatic rocks, dimension stone, crushed rock, quartz sands of the area
Slavonic mountains and the review of the whole Croatia in respect to quartz
sands and the brick and ceramic clays and evaporites. Also gold was
investigated of the area Požeška gora Mt.
Keywords: Methods of the investigations, geological structure, mineral deposits, mineral composition, chemical composition, genesis of deposits
Research goals: The exploration included the work in the field,
laboratory and cabinet. The methods in use were the geologic prospection,
geologic mapping, as well as remote sensing and sampling. The laboratory
work comprised microscopic analyses in transparent light and geochemical
analyses by the method of atomic emission spectrometry with induced plasma
(ICP). The scope of the project is further investigation of the Croatian
potential resources. Investigations are directed to the non-metallic ores -
crushed rock, building stone, quartz sands, brick and ceramic clays,
metallic ores - gold, and energetic resources - coal. The research work was
accomplished on granites, migmatic rocks of Papuk (dimension stone),
dolomites of Papuk Mt. (crushed rock), quartz sands of the fringe area of
Slavonic mountains (Ph.D. thesis) and the review of the whole Croatia in
respect to quartz sands and the brick and ceramic clays. Among metals gold
was investigated in the bimodal volcanic association from Požeška gora Mt.
Upper Permian evaporites of Dalmatia and borderline areas of Lika and
Bosnia were also investigated although they are not in Northen Croatia. Other information about the project.
