This paper is a documentation-like presentation of the study and description of ore minerals found in the geological key borehole Baksa 2. The ore minerals can be divided into two genetic groups by the studies. The lateral secretion phase can be regarded to be monophase represented by ilmenite. The other phase is formed by ore minerals coming from hydrothermal activity. These minerals are partly disseminated, and partly occur in veins. According to ore microscopic studies, the ore mineral paragenesis of the hydrothermal phase are the following: pyrite, marcasite, pyrrhotine, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, galena, pentlandite, hematite, covellite. The most significant ore indication of the borehole can be found at the depth of 186.4 m. It is a massive sulphide vein of 7 cm thickness with an independent mineral paragenesis formed by pyrite, marcasite, sphalerite, pyrrhotine, chalcopyrite and galena. On the basis of the exposed ore mineral paragenesis and the performed studies, the possibility of a perspective ore exploration can seriously arise.
