Located in southeast Eastern Sayan (coordinates approximate).

The mineralisation is related to an Ordovician granitoid pluton 445–441 Ma in age, which is cut by intermediate and basic dikes spatially associated with metavolcanic rocks of the Devonian–Carboniferous Ilei Sequence. Four mineral assemblages exist: (1) quartz–pyrite–molybdenite, (2) quartz–gold–pyrite, (3) gold–polysulfide, and (4) telluride.

The first mineralisation stage (~440 Ma) is related to intrusions generating Cu–Mo–Au porphyry mineralization and gold–polysulfide veins. The second mineralisation stage is controlled by dikes related to the Devonian–Carboniferous volcanic–plutonic association. This stage is characterized by increased Hg and Te and formation of a gold–mercury–telluride paragenesis.
