Latitude & Longitude: 43° North , 117° East (est.)
Margin of Error:~108km
Locality type:Deposit


Skarn-type tin-iron deposit, occurring in the contact zone between carbonate rocks of the Early Permian Dashizai and Huanggangliang formations and two Cretaceous orthoclase granite intrusions (K-Ar isotopic age: 67-115 Ma), one in the western part of the area and one in its eastern part. At the contact, garnet diopside skarn and garnet amphibole biotite skarn are intensively developed. The ore minerals occur in masses, breccias, veinlets, and disseminations. Farther away from the contact, small veins occur in intraformational fissures in the skarn bodies. Late-stage sulphide minerals, amphibole, and epidote replace the skarn and early magnetite.

The deposit area is 0.5-2.5 km wide and 19.5 km long and is worked by seven mines. The western part of the area contains several isolated iron-rich skarn ore bodies, which are worked by mines 1-4. In the eastern part of the area, a continuous band of tin-rich skarn lenses, about 6 km long, occurs in marble along the southern contact of the eastern intrusion. These ore bodies are worked by mines 5-7.

The deposit is genetically related to the Anle deposit, which occurs in the contact aureole of the eastern intrusion. Both deposits form part of a metallogenic belt along a major EW-trending fault zone, which includes several skarn-type deposits with mineral associations that are similar to Huanggang (e.g. Haobugao and Hujiadian). A similar mineralization also occurs in the Sumugou deposit, which is located a little north of Huanggang.

The deposit is known for excellent and large (up to 20 cm) ilvaite crystals that came on the market around 2010. The locality is often erroneously given as "Baotou District" (Ottens, 2011).

Notes:
(1) Cassiterite mainly occurs as microscopic inclusions in other minerals or as fine-grained to colloidal disseminations. Visible crystals are very small (Wang et al., 2007).
(2) Some specimens sold as hedenbergite turned out to be amphiboles upon analysis (Rock Currier, pers. commun.).
(3) Datolite occurs in mine no. 2, but some of the datolite specimens in trade are actually from a mine near Linxi (Ottens & Neumeier, 2012).
(4) According to Zhou et al. (2011), garnets vary in composition from andradite to grossular, with andradite fractions ranging from 28.7 to 96.4 mol-% and grossular fractions ranging from 2.0 to 67.4 mol-%. Garnets formed in early stages are andradites of nearly end-member composition, while garnets in the major ore-forming stage are grossular. The latter is also dominant in retrograde skarn assemblages. Likewise, pyroxenes change in composition from diopside in early stages to hedenbergite in the ore-forming stage. Thus, hedenbergite can be associated with grossular, but not with andradite. It is also not likely that all garnet specimens are andradites, although they appear to be notoriously sold as such.
