Name(s) in local language(s): 大黑山钼铜矿, 磐石市, 吉林市, 吉林省, 中国
Large-sized porphyry molybdenum-copper deposit, consisting of veinlets and disseminations in the Yanshanian plagiogranite that intrudes the highly metamorphosed Variscan granite of the Devonian Hulan group with a K-Ar biotite isotopic age of 354 Ma. The plagiogranite forms an ellipse with a surface area of 8 km2. From central to ourward, the important proximal alterations are silica, sericite, and kaolinite alterations. The deposit occurs at the intersection between the north-northeast-trending Panshi and the east-west-trending Huadian-Shuanghe structural zones that occur in the southeastern part of the Jilin Variscan fold belt near the north margin of Sino-Korean Plate.

Note: Not to be confused with the porphyry molybdenum deposit of the same name in Heilongjiang Province.
