Volcanic-hosted Au-base-metal metasomatite, with reserves of 7.32 tonnes Au. The basement rocks in the mine and in the area are metamorphic sequences of the Archean Wutai, Shizhui, Zhuangwang groups and the Archean Hengshan Complex. Mesozoic moderate-felsic igneous rocks intruded the area as small, varied shaped, hypabyssal intrusions accompanied by varied dykes and explosive pipes. Several veined zones, consisting of altered fault breccias and filled gold-bearing base metallic quartz veins, have been recognized in the area. The ore bodies are usually vein-, cake- and plate- shaped, and are strictly controlled by shear-fault zones. The ores are of idiomorphic-hypidiomorphic, xenomorphic-irregularly grained and fractured and crashed breccia textures and of massive, veined, banded and veinlet and stockwork structures. Alterations found in the deposit are mainly silicification, carbonatization and chloritization.
