This county includes the western part of the Late Mesozoic Luzong (Luzhong) subaerial volcanic basin (named for the Anhui counties of Lujiang and Zongyang) and its surrroundings. In the basin, Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous alkali-rich volcanic rocks (including trachybasalt, trachyandesite, andesitic trachyte, and trachyte) directly overlay Early to Middle Jurassic clastic sedimentary rocks. Yanshanian intrusions occur as small stocks and dykes, and are composed mainly of diorite, monzonite, monzogranite, syenite and granite.

The basin also contains some uranium deposits and forms the southeastern part of the Qilian-Qinling uranium province.

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Early Cretaceous : 135 Ma to 124.8 ± 2.1 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded below and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
