Goncheng Daoping has been mined since 1958. The deposit is located beneath a mountain, in the Guangxi province. The Daoping mine is accessed from the Gongcheng County side of the mountain. Mining resumed in 2011 with a mill capacity at 600t/d, however the mining capacity remained at 300t/d. Construction work on expanding the mine to reach 600t/d capacity was delayed due to issue with underground water affecting mine activities.
