Köppen climate type:Cfa : Humid subtropical climate


Stratabound sedimentary low-temperature silver-vanadium deposit with elevated contents of selenium, gold, platinum and palladium, consisting of black shales intercalated with Upper Sinian carbonates. The deposit contains an upper vanadium ore body and a lower silver-vanadium ore body. While silver occurs in form of independent though microscopic minerals, vanadium is found adsorbed to hydromica.
