Kosovo is one of the most metal-endowed country in Europe and has a rich mining history.
Is host to the Trepca 60 Mt Pb-Zn-Ag mining complex, but is yet under-explored for precious metals.
The country has a business friendly tax code (flat corporate tax rate of 10%) and charges a 5% royalty over precious metal production.
Two areas in N and NE Kosovo are recognised with elevated mineral potential, The Trepca Mineral Belt (TMB) and The Lece Magmatic Complex (LMC). These areas have distinct mineral deposit types, geological age of mineralization, and geodynamic settings.
- The Trepca Mineral Belt (TMB) hosts numerous skarn,epithermal‐vein and hydrothermal replacement Pb‐Zn‐Ag deposits, spatially and temporally associated with Oligocene and Miocene magmatic rocks.
- The Lece Magmatic Complex (LMC), situated 25 km east of the Trepca mineral belt, straddling the administrative border between Kosovo and Serbia, is host to several
porphyry and epithermal occurrences, associated with magmatic rocks of Oligocene age
The country has a modern mining code with straightforward licensing, First Come-First Served. Kosovo has a large countrywide database available, including detailed Airborne Geophysics and detailed Stream Sediments coverage. Airborne Geophysical Survey in Kosovo measured:
- Magnetics ( Earth's magnetic field)
- Four-frequency Electro-Magnetics,and
- Radiometrics ( Potassium, Thorium, Uranium)
