The Baima titaniferous magnetite deposit is located in Sichuan Province, south-western China.

The deposit occurs within the Panzhihua-Xichang (Pan-Xi) intra-continental rift on the Yangtze Platform, and is hosted by a sill like layered basic-ultrabasic (gabbroic) complex.

The Baima layered intrusion is a member of the extensive 260 Ma Lower Emeishan Igneous Province and flood basalts of SW China.

The mineralisation occurs in numerous titanomagnetite layers.

Baima is to the north of the large Panzhihua and Hongge deposits which are the subject of separate records in this database.

No production has been recorded from Baima (2006), when the deposit was still at the prospect stage.

Reserves are quoted by Rundqvist, et al., Vernadsky SGM, Moscow as:

      1152 Mt @ 27.75% Fe.
