Osogovo Mountain ІІІ

On the northern slopes of the Osogovo Mountain there are places with proluvial trails, formed from alluvial fans. The mountain has a clearly delineated rounded ridge top, on which fragments of the Early Miocene denudation surface have been preserved. Much better developed is the Late Palaeocene denudation level, with an average height of 1500 – 1600 meters. Geologically, the Osogovo mountain is part of the Kraishtidite (one of the main morphologic structures in Bulgaria). Its basement (Riphean in age) is built of diabases and phyllites, converted into gneisses and amphibolites, consecutively intruded by small bodies of gabbroids, diorites and leucogranites (the so-called Struma Diorite Formation) as well as granites (Osogovo pluton), the age of which has not been determined. During the Palaeogene the Osogovo Mountain underwent a phase of intensive rifting, concurring with flow of volcanic masses, predominantly acidic in composition (formed from rocks, intermediate between rhyolites and dacites). These events are associated with polymetallic mineralizations. The major part of the Gyueshevo ore zone is lies in the Osogovo Mountain.
