The large batholitic terrain in the southwestern half of the Moravo-Silesian basement consists of two separate domains, the smaller Dyje (Dyje) Dome and the larger Brno Composite Batholith.
These intrusions, and the hypogene copper mineralization which closely followed them, probably emanated from a Laramide-age batholitic pluton complex locally known as the Cuitaca-Tinaja batholith, dated at about 63.
