    We have analyzed 44 micro-earthquakes with magnitudes between 1.2 and 3.4, which occurred in the Dobrá Voda area, Slovakia, in the period 2001–2009. The epicentres of the micro-earthquakes form a cluster elongated in the ENE–WSW direction. This direction coincides with the orientation of the main fault systems in the area: Dobrá Voda and Brezová faults. The depths of the hypocentres vary from 1 km to 14 km. Three different methods were used to calculate the focal mechanisms: (a) a method using the polarities of Pg and Pn waves, (b) the P-wave amplitude inversion of moment tensors, and (c) the waveform inversion of moment tensors. The majority of the analyzed micro-earthquakes have a left-lateral strike-slip focal mechanism with weak normal or reverse components.
