This is a molybdenum deposit in Jindui City, Shaanxi Province. It is located on the southern slope of Huashan in the eastern Qinling Mountains. The Jinduicheng molybdenum deposit is under the jurisdiction of Jindui Town in Hua County, Shaanxi Province. The deposit sits on the concave Jinduicheng platform in the West Henan upfault zone, which is located on the southwestern margin of the Sino-Korean paraplatform. The exposed rock strata are part of the Proterozoic Xionger Group and Gaoshanhe Formation. The discovery of the Jinduicheng molybdenum deposit had tremendous political and economic significance for the young People’s Republic of China when its economy was still in its initial stage of growth (Fig. 8).
