Name(s) in local language(s): 坪地-上西坑钼矿床, 武夷山市, 南平市, 福建省, 中国
Magmatic-hydrothermal vein type molybdenum deposit, hosted in Proterozoic metamorphic rocks (schist, amphibolite and granulites) and Late Jurassic sandstones and siltstones, that are intruded by Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous granites and granite porphyries. Within the contact zone, limestone lenses locally occurring in the sedimentary rocks were transformed into skarns, which host lead-zinc mineralizations. The deposit is worked from three mines: Pingdi, which is located in the contact zone, and Shangxikeng and Dongkeng, which are located outside of the contact zone.
