Alkaline massif with boron-rich granitoids intruding into schists, crossed by metasomatite and pegmatite veins.

Pegmatites resulting from the differentiation of a silicic melt to the point where saturation in boron is attained under vapour unsaturation (peralkaline sodic and SiO2-undersaturated residual melt) with reedmergnerite + orthoclase/microcline/quartz assemblage (450-500 °C, P is less than = 2kb).

Note: This locality is in a very remote area with hostile actors in the area. Recent access has been by helicopter.
