A gold deposit, located in the Wang'ershan fault zone which strikes NNE and dips to the NW at an average angle of around 42°. The hanging wall of the fault is formed by Linglong granite and the footwall by Guojialing granodiorite. Pyrite-sericite-quartz alteration along the fault zone occurs within both the Linglong and Guojialing granites, and is typically 60-100 m wide. Gold mineralization is present mostly as disseminations within the sheared alteration zone on the footwall side of the structure. The orebodies are in the form of lodes or lenses which pinch and swell and commonly split and merge. The Hedong mine is separated into two sub-districts, the main Hedong sub-district in the north and the smaller Fujia sub-district in the south. The majority of the known resources are located within the Hedong sub-district.
