Other regions containing this locality:Asia

Lead-zinc-copper-silver-gold polymetallic deposit, hosted in low-grade metamorphic sedimentary rocks and mafic volcanic rocks of the Lower Mesoproterozoic Shuangqiaoshan Group, continental volcanic rocks of the Jurassic Erhuling Group and a dacitic subvolcanic porphyry stock. Cu-Au ore bodies occur close to the dacite stock, whereas Pb-Zn-Ag ore bodies occur at a greater distance.
