PGE-bearing ultramafic body, intruded into Archean metamorphic rocks (mainly hornblende-plagioclase gneiss, with minor schist and marble) along a tectonic fault on the south side of the EW-trending Hongshila-Damiao fault. The body is lens-shaped in plan view, 7 km long and 10-420 m wide, and dips northwest at angles of 60-80°. It is composed of apatite-bearing actinolitized diopsidite at its center, which is surrounded by amphibolite. Diopsidite is the main ore-bearing rock; it contains platinum and minor palladium, grading at up to 1.01 g/t of Pt and 0.21 g/t of Pd.

The deposit was discovered in 1970 and completed a detailed investigation in 2004. As of 2007, it had not been mined.

Located near Hongshila village.


Note: In early Chinese publications, this locality was referred to as "Hung District", derived from the first syllable of "Hongshila" (which became "Hung" in the Wade-Giles system of transliteration that was then in use).
