Name(s) in local language(s): 302铀矿, 长江铀矿田 (211铀矿田), 仁化县, 韶关市, 广东省, 中国
Granite-type hydrothermal uranium deposit, occurring near the contact of a mini-porphyritic Early Jurassic two-mica granite with a Late Jurassic to Late Cretaceous porphyritoid biotite granite. The ore bodies, mostly veins and lenses, are hosted in a NNW-trending brecciation zone caused by a tension fault.
Located in the eastern part of the Changjiang ore field.

China's largest granite-type uranium deposit.
