Name(s) in local language(s):沃溪锑钨金矿(湘西锑钨金矿), 沅陵县, 怀化市, 湖南省, 中国
Latitude & Longitude (WGS84): 28° 31' 59'' North , 110° 52' 0'' East
Latitude & Longitude (decimal): 28.53333,110.86667
GeoHash:G#: wmnf6f6ds
Locality type:Group of Mines
Köppen climate type:Cfa : Humid subtropical climate


The Woxi deposit was discovered in 1875 and since then has been continuously exploited. Reserves amount to 1.76 million tons of ore, grading at 12.98 g/t Au, 6.45% Sb and 0.47% WO3. Currently, about 800 tons of ore is mined and processed per day. There are several mines in the area, including Hongyanxi, Lijiaxi, Shangwoxi (Upper Woxi), Shilupenggong, Sujiaxi, and Yuershan.

Country rocks are Proterozoic low-grade metamorphic rocks, comprising the Lengjiaxi group (base) with sandy, greyish green slates and locally phyllites, and the Banxi group (top), consisting of (a) the Madiyi Formation of red slates, locally interbedded with sandy rocks and sandstones, and (b) the Wuqiangxi Formation of sandy, greyish green slates, arkoses and sandstones. The Madiyi Formation is a very important host unit for gold deposits in northwestern Hunan. The mineralization is controlled by the E-W striking Woxi thrust fault and by anticlines and synclines. At the fault, the older Madiyi Formation dips below the younger Wuqiangxi Formation. To the southwest, the Lengjiaxi Group is disconformably overlain by the Madiyi Formation. The stratabound orebodies occur in red slates of the Madiyi Formation and may be associated with a magmatic intrusion.


Notes:
(1) Xiangxi (sometimes erroneously spelled Xianxi) is a misnomer. This term generally refers to Western Hunan Province. Papers on a "Xiangxi Sb-W-Au deposit" are in fact mostly dealing with the Woxi deposit, but this is not necessarily the case.
(2) Papers variously refer to the locality as a deposit or an ore field.
(3) The grid reference is centered on the area.
