A source of thermo-mineral water of Vranjska spa is of great importance for environmental protection of rural settlements. Wealthy mineral water composition and the temperature of 93°C are very suitable for the spa tourism development. Capacity of the water source allows appications in industry as well as in food production. Geographical position, developed road network, vicinity to the highway and consumers attainability allow economic development of Vranje region, to whom population from other regions gravitates. The location of the borehole for water exploitation is in the center of Vranjska spa, consisted of tertiary sediments of Vranjska basin. The presence of volcano-sedimentary rocks and deep rift structures indicate a potential perspective of the area as a geothermal energy source. Although the potential of Vranjska spa is still insufficiently exploited in this asspect due to the fact that the resources of fossil fuel are being rapidly depleted, this situation is going be chang...ed in near future and therefore is the subject of our research.
