Small granitoid-related low-temperature hydrothermal quartz vein-type gold deposit with metamorphic overprint, located in an area where Archean metamorphic rocks, Jurassic volcanic rocks and Mesozoic granite are exposed. Gold-bearing veins occur in secondary faults of large regional faults. The main gold-hosting minerals are pyrite and magnetite. The ore minerals occur as deformed granules, veins, masses, disseminations, and bands, and exhibit metasomatic textures and structures.
