Name(s) in local language(s): 莲花山铜银多金属矿, 突泉县, 兴安盟, 内蒙古自治区, 中国
Hydrothermal vein-type copper-silver-polymetallic deposit, located in a secondary uplift of the Tuquan Mesozoic volcanic depression of the Daban-Wulanhaote volcanic belt. The deposit-controlling structures can be divided into three groups, i.e, NE-, NW-, and EW-trending fracture zones. Early Yanshannian porphyry intrusives are well developed in the district; they consist of diorite porphyry, granodiorite porphyry, markfieldite (U-Pb zircon isochron age: 161.8 Ma), and adamellitic porphyry. The exposed strata are early Permian meta-andesite (Dashizhai formation), dacite tuff and tuffaceous sandstone, and Middle to Late Jurrasic volcanic and sedimentary rocks. There are more than 30 orebodies, striking NW and dipping NE.
