A scheelite mine in skarn. Located 5 km SE of the Kuga Mine. Includes the Akemidani, Moninoki, Gosento, Ikenotani and Gunrin deposits.
The area consists of Upper Paleozoic to lower Mesozoic formations of slate, sandstone, chert and limestone, intruded by late cretaceous granitic rocks. Produced 160 tons of copper and 2150 tons of tungsten between 1955-1977.
27 valid minerals.

GeochronologyMineralization age: Late Cretaceous : 94.6 ± 2.8 Ma to 92.1 ± 3.7 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.
