Seven new high precision U–Pb single crystal zircon ages are reported from Jurassic and early Cretaceous volcanic rocks in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR). These ages are used in combination with Zr vs. TiO2 ratios to refine the stratigraphy of the Lantau Volcanic Group on Lantau Island and in adjoining districts in Hong Kong. As a result, three major unconformities are proposed and the rift-controlled paleogeography of the region, which influenced the development of the… CONTINUE READING
