Volcanic-hosted massive sulfide (VHMS) deposit in Lower to Middle Devonian submarine bimodal volcanic rocks. The primary ores are represented by massive syn-depositional pyrite, chalcopyrite, and sphalerite, and were formed by submarine exhalation. Hydrothermal alteration consists of strong sericitization, chloritization, silicification, and carbonatization of the metavolcanic rocks beneath the massive orebodies.
