As its name indicates ("Tieshan" means "Iron Mountain"), the district owes its existence to iron-ore mines.

The town is served by China National Highway 106, which also doubles as China National Highway 316 in this part of Hubei.

The only administrative direct subdivision is a town-simulating village (区直辖村模拟镇).[2][3][4][5]
