Cenozoic stratabound Zn-Pb-Ag deposit, hosted by Tertiary sandstones within a tectonically active basin. The deposit is presumably of sedimentary-exhalative type (SEDEX): the fracture zone along the longitudinal axis of the Lanping basin is believed to have been the conduit of a mud volcano (Gao et al., 2005)

The deposit was discovered in 1960 and is the largest lead-zinc deposit in China. It is subdivided into seven ore zones: Jiayashan (架崖山),Beichang (北厂),Nanchang (南厂),Xipo (西坡),Baicaoping (白草坪), Paomaping (跑马坪), and Fengzishan (蜂子山). Reserves amount to 200 million tons of ore, grading at 6.08% Zn and 1.29% Pb, of which about 40% are contained in a thick well-developed oxidation zone.

The Lanping Mine is the world's fourth largest lead-zinc mine.

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Late Cretaceous : 88.4 ± 2.7 Ma to 70.4 ± 1.9 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.
