The manganese deposits in Heishui County are all located near Hongyan village, which is located a few kilometers east of Heishui town. They are all hosted in the same formation, which crops out at several places in the area. The "Heishui manganese deposit" which is occasionally mentioned in the literature generally refers to this ore district. A specific deposit of this name does not exist.
