Large-scale sedimentary exhalative (SEDEX) polymetallic sulphide deposit, consisting of stratiform and lenticular orebodies within dolomite and carbonaceous shale of the Proterozoic Zhaertai group (Sm-Nd modal age of 1531-1551 Ma). The deposit is controlled by the E-W trending Langshan anticlinorium. In its north limb, Cu is dominant, with minor amounts of Pb and Zn, while the content of Zn is high in its south limb. The ore district is 2.5 km long (E-W) and 1-2 km wide (S-N). It is located in the south margin of the Inner Mongolian fold belt, and within the E-W-striking Yinshan tectonic belt.
