Baishiquan Cu-Ni deposit, Baishiquan ore district, Hami Co. (Kumul Co.; Qumul Co.), Hami Prefecture (Kumul Prefecture; Qumul Prefecture), Xinjiang Autonomous Region, China

Name(s) in local language(s): 白石泉铜镍矿, 白石泉矿区, 哈密市 (قۇمۇل شەھىرى), 哈密地区 (قۇمۇل ۋىلايىتى), 新疆维吾尔自治区, 中国
The Baishiquan deposit comprises around 20 small mafic-ultramafic intrusions which are composed mainly of olivine pyroxenite, pyroxene peridotite, troctolite, hornblendite, diorite, norite, and gabbro. They were emplaced in two stages, the first of which comprises 90% of the complex. Peridotite and olivine pyroxenite of this stage are the host rocks for the ores. So far, 14 Cu-Ni-sulphide zones have been discovered, of which five are exposed and 9 are buried.
