Name(s) in local language(s): 夹皮沟金矿, 夹皮沟金矿田, 桦甸市, 吉林市, 吉林省, 中国
Large-scale shear zone and quartz vein type gold deposit, consisting of sulphide-poor gold veins occurring in a NW-trending belt that is concordant to a NW-trending shear zone. The deposit is hosted along the northern boundary of the Jilin-Liaoning-Shangdong tonalite-trondhjemite-granodiorite terrane of the North China Platform. The oldest isotopic age is 3.0 Ga. Younger heating events occurred at mainly 2.5 to 2.6 Ga and 1.9 to 1.6 Ga. The origin of the deposit is debated with some geologists interpreting the deposits as related to magmatism during the Hercynian and/or Yanshan Orogeny.

This deposit has been mined since more than 100 years.
