Uraniferous bitumens found in black shales from the Permian rocks at Vrchlabí in the Krkonoše Piedmont Basin (Czech Republic) were described and characterized petrologically and mineralogically. The Permian sediments originated from weathering products in metasediments and granitoids of the Krkonoše–Jizera and Orlice–Sněžník crystalline complexes....

The Central Bohemian magmatic complex belongs to the Central European Variscan belt. The granitic rocks of this plutonic complex are formed by several suites of granites, granodiorites, and tonalites, together with small bodies of gabbros, gabbro diorites, and diorites. The granodiorites of the Blatná suite are high-K, calc-alkaline to shoshonitic,...
