Tieshan District (simplified Chinese: 铁山区; traditional Chinese: 鐵山區; pinyin: Tiěshān Qū) is a district of the prefecture-level city of Huangshi, Hubei province, People's Republic of China. Small in area (28.7 square kilometres (11.1 sq mi)), it is squeezed between the "county-level city" Daye to the south and west, Huangshi's Xialu District to the east, and the prefecture-level city of Ezhou to the north. Physically, it is a small mining town.

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.
