Tin-polymetallic deposit, consisting of veinlet-disseminated tin-tungsten mineralizations in the inner contact zone of a quartz porphyry intrusion and vein-type polymetallic ore bodies in its outer contact zone. There also are skarns in the area which exhibit a strong vertical zoning. The mine is worked for tin and iron.
