Magmatic and metasomatic apatite deposit, consisting of stratiform and circular igneous masses that occur at the intersection of two huge fracture zones in cratonal rock. The deposit is hosted in a carbonatite which forms part of an alkalic, stratiform ultramafic-syenite complex (Fanshan complex). Rich mineral assemblages of apatite and biotite-apatite are intercalated with biotite gabbro and pyroxenite. The P grade ranges from 25% to a maximum of 38.69% P2O5. The minerals occur in masses, bands and disseminations.

Presently (2002), the mine produces relatively low grade P ore at relatively high cost for local fertilizer producers.

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Triassic : 248 Ma to 203 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded below and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
