Summary:

The projects are situated in the northern mountain foot of western Guokalariju, eastern lower mountain of the Gangdise Mountains. It is precipitous. The southern part is high while the northern part is low with a strong cutting and glacier landform. The highest altitude is 5,566m. The elevation of the base level of erosion near the mining area is approximately 3,900m. The vegetation at the gullies and two sides is mainly high-mountain meadow. There is basically no tree and the vegetation is simple.

The Qulong porphyry-type copper and molybdenum deposit is located at the Gandise metallogenic belt of the Tethys-Himalayan metallogenic province, one of the main porphyry-type copper mine metallogenic provinces in the world. The existing Qulong Copper and Polymetallic Mine and the Rongmucuola Copper and Polymetallic Mine in the deposit are a complete porphyry-type copper deposit with a burial depth of 3 to 96m, which is generally a concealed to semi-concealed deposit. The deposit is east-west oriented with length of 2.27km, width of 1.50km from north to south in an oval shape. The ore is mainly structured by veinlet-disseminated orebody.
