Bajiazi Zn-Pb-Ag deposit, Jianchang Co., Huludao Prefecture, Liaoning Province (Manchuria; Dongbei Region), China

Name(s) in local language(s): 八家子锌铅银矿, 建昌县, 葫芦岛市, 辽宁省, 中国
Skarn-type zinc-lead-silver deposits within an area of about 60 square kilometers, comprising several ore zones. Ore bodies occur in the contact zone between Yanshanian (170-177.4 Ma) quartz monzodiorite intrusives and Middle Proterozoic dolomitic marble of the Gaoyuzhuang Formation, as well as along NW- and NS-trending fault systems in carbonate wall rocks. There is a pronounced zoning of the metasomatic mineralisation within the deposit, from the intrusive contact zone outward to dolomitic marble along the NW-trending fault system, with three ore-bearing magnesian and manganoan skarn zones being distinguished.

Not to be mistaken for the Bajiazi Au deposit in Jilin Province.
