Banded iron formation (BIF), similar to Lake Superior type iron deposits. Reserves of 895 million tonnes of ore grading at 32.37% Fe. Host rocks are clastic rocks, mudstone, carbonate rocks and minor volcanic rocks that are metamorphosed to greenschist facies. The Fe beds strike NS for several to more than ten km and are 300 m thick. Ore minerals occur in silicate and carbonate rock with laminated and striped textures.
