The Jiashengpan stratabound sediment hosted zinc-lead deposit is located within the Mesoproterozoic Langshan-Zha'ertai-Bayun Obo ore belt of Inner Mongolia, approximately 100 km south-west of Byan Obo and 200 km WNW of Hohhot (#Location: 41° 13' 50"N, 109° 18' 00"E).

The deposit is hosted by a Mesoproterozoic sedimentary sequence of the Zha'ertai (Zhartai or Chartai) Group which includes carbonaceous and silty dolomite and black carbonaceous slate/phyllite and occurs in a third-order fault-basins in the Langshan-Zha'ertaishan aulacogen along the northern margin of the North China Platform.

It comprises several concordant, banded sulphide bodies which are folded with the host rocks and concentrated in the hinges of folds where they are thickened and of higher grade.

The ore minerals comprise pyrite, pyrrhotite, sphalerite and galena which occur in layers, masses, disseminations, laminae. Sphalerite predominate in the lower parts of the deposit, with galena increasing upwards.

The principal gangue minerals are dolomite, diopside, calcite, tremolite, plagioclase, K feldspar and quartz.

The deposit is quoted in the Nat. Res. Canada website (2004) as having a geological resource of:
      500 Mt @ 3.8% Zn, 1.3% Pb.

Other local sources quoted a resource of:
      62 Mt @ 3.8%Zn, 1.3%Pb, 0.1g/tAu in 1999.
