Carlin-like gold deposit, hosted in Middle Devonian tuffaceous slates.

The veins in the Pingding area are worked by two mines, the Pingding Mine and the Xionghuangpo Mine, or "Realgar mine" (Xionghuangpo means Realgar in Mandarin). The mines are about 1 km apart and the mineralization encountered underground is essentially the same.



Note:: "Dingping" appears to be a mis-nomer.
