The 1694 U–Pb ages of detrital zircons from Permian arc basins of the accretionary collision zone between the Mongolian Arcs and the North China Craton exhibit a wide age range, from Neoarchean (ca. 2.5 Ga) to Late Permian (ca. 269 Ma), with major age populations around ca. 2.5 Ga, ca. 1.8 Ga, ca. 436 Ma, ca. 314 Ma and ca. 269 Ma (Figs. 4.1 and 4.2a).
