Skarn-type copper-gold-molybdenum deposit, hosted in the contact zone between Palaeoproterozoic marble and a giant porphyritic granite. Both magnesian and calcic skarns are present. Sulphides occur mainly in calcic skarn but overprint both skarn types. A great diversity of metamorphic and altered igneous rocks is exposed in the wall rocks.
