Rupice, a diamond in the rough discovered amongst a pile of discarded documents
Old documents related to both Veovaca and Rupice concessions were discovered in the disused Veovaca administration building:
- Geological maps, maps of exploration adits, cross sections, drill logs (c.50 with all the data-collars, assays, geological descriptions), operations and other reports.
- geophysics (IP – chargeability), costeans, exploration adits (barite sample sent to USA), and drilling
These indicated the presence of polymetallic mineralisation at Rupice.
Exploration activities in Rupice area commenced in 1952 and continued intermittently until 1990, initially focusing on barite mineralisation and later, polymetallic mineralisation.
