The new summary of metallogeny of the Erzgebirge/Krusné hory granite batholith (Sn, W, U, Pb-Zn, Ag, Bi, Co, Ni, fluorite and barite) in Central Europe shows that the symmetrical and synchronous mineral zones around the granitic magmatic foci of temperature and pressure do not exist. The irregular distribution of mineral districts is controlled by the lines of emplacement of younger granites, by major deep-seated fault zones and by the local lithology in the envelope. Variously mineralized crustal segments were exposed to different fluids of various origin after the emplacement of granites. This is the main cause for the irregular distribution of orebearing assemblages in relation to the granites which early workers interpreted as horizontal mineral zoning.
