ABSTRACT
The paper presents the types and subtypes of soils within the area where goldbearing ore mining and processing is to take place in the Roşia Montană. Six types of soils: Dystric Cambisol, Eutric Cambisol, Andosol, Lithosol, Regosol and Fluvisol are covering the Rosia Montana area. Dystricambisols and Eutricambisols are predominant (74% from the all studied area, which is 1647 ha). Lithosols represent 11% from the all studied area. The soils are generally skeletal. The prevailing texture in A horizon is loamy and sandy loamy. The fertile layer thickness is generally small. Reaction of the soils is acid, strongly acid over 52% of the area and moderate acid over 40% of the area. The humus content is low. The nitrogen and potassium are at a medium level of content.
