In this paper we presented some differences on mineral mining phases: Hajvali Badovc Kizhnica, and Artana mine. From our study, the four mines have high values of iron (Fe) content in sfalerite: Badovc 9.43% Fe; Hajvali 10.24% Fe; Përroi i ngjyrosur (Artana) 10.61% Fe; and about 13% Fe for Kizhnica mine. Low content of bismuth in sphalerite: Hajvali (0.03% Bi), Përroi i ngjyrosur–Artana (0.04% Bi), Kizhnica (0.06% Bi), and Badovc deposit < 0.01% Bi. The silver (Ag) contents in sphalerite of these deposits are very low: Hajvali and Badovc mines 0.015% Ag respectively 0.01% Ag. In two other mines Ag-content in sphalerite is very-very low or almost absent in sfalerit. Pyrites of these deposits characterized by low arsenic (As) content, except Badovc where its value amounts to 1.3%. Whereas regarding the silver (Ag) content in pyrites: the higher its content are found in Përroi i ngjyrosur-Artana mine (0.03% Ag), then Kizhnica (0.02% Ag), Hajvali (0.01% Ag), and almost missing in mine Badovc. Galena of all the mining containing antimony (Sb), bismuth (Bi), and silver (Ag). Generally characterized by low values of Sb and Bi, although the Bi contents are higher compared to those of Sb, and with antimony leads them Artana mines (0.09% Sb). Galena of the Hajvalia mine contains more silver (> 100g/t Ag), than other mines (which are very poor with silver).
