Köppen climate type:BWk : Cold desert climate


Quartz vein and fractured altered rock type polymetallic deposit, hosted along fault and fracture zones in volcanic rocks (andesite, dacite, rhyolite, andesitic, dacitic and rhyolitic tuffs, tuffaceous phyllite, tuffaceous slate) and Late Variscan granites. The deposit forms a belt that is 18 km long from east to west and 1-2 km wide from north to south. The area is sub-divided into 8 ore blocks that vary in lithologies and mineralization styles.
