Köppen climate type:Dwa : Monsoon-influenced hot-summer humid continental climate


Shear zone and quartz vein-type gold deposit, consisting of diseminations and veinlets that occur parallel to schistosity in mylonite. Host rock alterations are albite, silica, sericite, chlorite, pyrite, and carbonate alterations. The deposit is located in a tonalite-trondhjemite-granodiorite belt in the North China Platform. The host rocks are derived from mafic volcanic rocks, volcanic graywackes, and banded iron formations (BIF) that are metamorphosed to granulite, pyroxene gneiss, and amphibolite. The isotopic age of the metamorphic rock is 3.5 Ga. The metamorphosed supracrustal rock is interpreted by some workers as a greenstone belt. Shearing and retrograde metamorphism to greenschist facies probably occurred at 2.5 to 2.6 Ga, 1.7 to 1.8 Ga, or later.
