Note: "Dongwu Qi" is an abbreviation that is occasionally used for "Dong Wuzhumuqin Qi", which is the Chinese name of the Inner Mongolian East Ujimqin Banner. Note that "Qi" (pronounced "shee", with a very soft "sh") is nothing else than the Chinese term for "Banner", which denotes a county-level administrative division in Inner Mongolia.

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Jurassic : 201.3 ± 0.2 Ma to ~145.0 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded on mindat.org for this locality 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.
