An up-to date exhaustive bibliographic study is presented in order to highlight the evolution of the knowledge of endogenous breccias related to Neogene magmatism from Romania during the 19th and 20th centuries. This approach is based mainly on Romanian literature but there are also several foreign citations. Instead of the general opinion (widespread among Romanian mining companies) according to which the occurrence of the breccia structures in Romania is scarcely, this paper show the ubiquitous presence of breccia pipe and breccia dyke structures among the Neogene ore deposits from Romania, in Apuseni Mountains as well as in Eastern Carpathians.
