Stratabound barite deposit conformably situated at the Permian-Triassic boundary. The orebodies are equilateral layers, ranging in size from several metres to 300m and 1 to 5m in thickness. The richest barite ores were 70-90% barite, but on average, were 20-70% barite. The barite was mined for decades, and pyrite was discarded in large masses as a waste gangue minerals.
