Small high-grade volcanic-sedimentary copper-zinc-lead deposit with associated silver ores, hosted in the Maobazi volcanic pipe. The skarn-like ore bodies predominantly consist of manganese silicates but completely lack common skarn minerals such as wollastonite, andradite, grossular, actinolite, magnetite and hematite.
