Name(s) in local language(s): 白秧坪铜钴银矿, 西矿带, 白秧坪银铜多金属矿田, 兰坪白族普米族自治县, 怒江傈僳族自治州, 云南省, 中国
Vein-type polymetallic deposit, hosted in limestone and dolomite of the Upper Triassic Sanhedong Formation, and sandstones of the Lower Cretaceous Jingxing and Eocene Baoxiangsi formations. The orebodies mostly occur in veined, network and lenticular forms. Ore fabrics are characterized by crystallization and replacement textures and veined, network, brecciated and disseminated structures.
