Regional Overview

The Tethyan Metallogenic Belt is one of the world’s major metal producing regions. It is also one of the longest and largest, going through 33 countries, with 6 major sub-regions differentiated along the belt.

The western side of the belt is the richest and is known for two main periods of gold and copper rich magmatism, which occurred during the Cretaceous and Cenozoic eras.

The Cretaceous aged deposits are dominantly Cu-Au porphyry, high-sulphidation epithermal and volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits, whereas in the Cenozoic magmatic belt, copper is significant in porphyry systems only.

Western Tethyan Resources’ regional focus includes project generation and acquisition across Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Kosovo, North Macedonia and Serbia.
