Skarn and porphyry copper-polymetallic deposit. The deposit includes 67 ore bodies of varying ore composition (copper, copper-zinc, copper-molybdenum, iron, zinc, lead-zinc, and gold ore bodies). They are grouped into four ore blocks which are named A, B, C and Suolajier. The Suolajier block is presently mined from an open pit.
