Hydrothermal lead-zinc deposit, hosted in limestone, sandstone and shale of the Devonian Wuzhishan formation that are locally intruded by granites and some lamprophyre dykes. The deposit straddles the border between Gongcheng and Yangshuo counties and is jointly worked by the Daoping and Yangshuo mines which are connected underground.

Plumbogummite ?
Formula: PbAl3(PO4)(PO3OH)(OH)6
Colour: Light blue
Description: According to Ottens (2014) the plumbogummite labelled and sold as coming from Daoping mine or Yangshuo Mine, in fact originates from Laohu (Case of mislabelling). Description of these: These botryoidal crusts of micro-crystals either pseudomorphic after pyromorphite or coating pyromorphite crystals (pyromorphite not visible but crystal shapes are evident).
