Key


Gold mining town within a gold mining district (approximately 10x3 miles).

Mining activities started in the 1840s, after the deposits were discovered by Chinese miners.

Three types of gold deposits: gold-bearing calcic skarn, gold-and base-metal-bearing veins, and carbonate-replacement ore bodies.
