Köppen climate type:ET : Tundra

Y-Zr-Nb deposit located in an exocontact metasomatic zone of the Northern outcrop of the Khaldzan Buragtag alkaline massif. The deposit is represented by two linear ore zones (Western and Eastern), located at some northern foot of Mt. Ulyn Khuren and as a stock-like body on the northern flank. Ores of this locality are composed of carbonate-amphibole-quartz-epidote metasomatites with disseminated zircon and fergusonite mineralization. These metasomatites are superimposed on alkaline granite pegmatites and stockworks.
