Shetai Jade site in Inner Mongolia

Based on the fragmentary information that the new Shetai jade mine is situated at 1800m altitude near "Dashetai Town, Wulateqianqi, Bayannao'er, Inner Mongolia, China" I have searched via Google Earth in the vicinity of Dashetai for mountains of this elevation. There is one mountain range about 35Km south of Dashetai which meets this criterion. A little to the east there is the town of Baoutou and still farther Hohhot with its airport.

Best regards to all FOJ for 2008 and I will keep on digging!

Is the jade jadeite or nephrite or possibly Bowenite?
