Volcanic-sedimentary Fe-Cu deposit, hosted in sedimentary rocks (amphibole biotite schist, albite leptite, silicious rocks, chelmsfordite marble, etc.), and related to basic volcanic rocks and marbles of the upper Manganghe and lower Feiweihe formations of the Lower Proterozoic Dahonghsan Group. The ore bodies are bedded, bedded-like and lenticular, conformable to the country rocks, and are folded together with the latter occasionally.
