Köppen climate type:BWk : Cold desert climate


Iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposit, consisting of specularite-rich veins with copper, gold and silver ores, hosted in Jurassic shale and sandstone in the core of an anticline. The ore typically grades at 2-9& of Cu, 0.1-0.65 g/kg of Ag and 0.5-35 mg/kg of Au.

The deposit was explored in 1969-1972 and has been mined since 1972. The minerals of the mine were not displayed for more than three decades. Recently, it produced very fine and aesthetic specimens, particularly of calcite, hemimorphite and quartz.

Located in South Khorasan province, WNW of Nehbandan and about 180 km SSW of Birjand city.
