Jadeite dikes and veins in serpentinite. Also secondary deposits with jadeite pebbles and boulders in conglomerate and in unconsolidated placers in the Natmaw river. 32 air km from the Nansibon mines.

Note: The correct location of this mine requires confirmation. 32 air km (see above) or "roughly 30 km south of Nansibon" (as mentioned by Hughes et al. - see link below) does not make sense - there are no obvious mining areas in a 30 km circle around Nansibon.
