Name(s) in local language(s): 平武绿柱石矿 (虎牙钨锡铍矿, 雪宝顶钨锡铍矿), 虎牙藏族乡, 雪宝顶山, 平武县, 绵阳市, 四川省, 中国
 
Quartz vein-type tungsten-tin-beryllium (scheelite-cassiterite-beryl) deposit, hosted in intercalating schists and marble of the Lower Triassic Zagunao series, that are intruded by a Yanshanian rare element-rich (Be, W, Sn, Li, Ta, Rb, etc.) adamellite-monzodiorite. More than 40 veins are known on the southeast slope of the Xuebaoding massif, near Huya village. Individual veins are several tens of meters long and typically 0.5-1.5 m wide.

Located in the northwest portion of Pingwu county, near the border with Songpan county.
