Skarn and porphyry copper-polymetallic deposit, occurring in the contact zone between limestones of the Jurassic Duodigou Formation and pelites of the Cretaceous Linbuzong Formation. The skarn cuts a large hornfelsic contact metamorphic aureole that is replaced by sericite and clays within a broad alteration zone, and is cut itself by later, unaltered, quartz-feldspar porphyries. The porphyry system of Jiama hosts many different mineralization types owing to different wall rocks, including porphyry Mo-Cu ore bodies centered in intrusions, skarns and hornfels, and Au ore bodies in independent peripheral locations. The area also comprises vein-type copper ore bodies and lenses of silver-rich massive galena.

The deposit contains measured resources of 500,000 tonnes of copper, 550,000 tonnes of lead, 60,000 tonnes of zinc, 14 tonnes (450,000 oz) of gold and 770 tonnes (23 million ounces) of silver.

Located about 60 km east of Lhasa and 6 km north of the Qulong deposit.

Description: The authors mention gladite (in Chinese 柱硫铋铜铅矿) as occurring here in the English abstract of their paper, but the Chinese text refers to this mineral as 硫铋铜矿, which translates as wittichenite. This also agrees with papers by other authors: several of them report wittichenite, but none of them reports gladite.
