Defunct silver-gold mine which worked several banded and brecciated quartz veins hosted in black shales, slightly metamorphosed to hornfels around contact with granite porphyry intrusion. Most important vein was the Hon-pi (140m strike, 30m vertically); also the Ichigo-hi (30m), Nigo-hi (386m), Sango-hi (220m); gold content 2 to 5g/ton, silver 67 to 3,000g/t.
