Abstract: The geometry and timing of amalgamation of the North China craton (NCC) have been controversial, with three main models with significantly different interpretations of regional structure, geochronology, and geological relationships. The model of Zhao G C et al. suggests that the eastern and western blocks of the NCC formed separately in the Archean, and an active margin was developed on the eastern block between 2.5 and 1.85 Ga, when the two blocks collided above an east dipping subduction zone...
