Sample TA118, Tangbale district, Kekesayi terrane (Ordovician of China)

Where: Xinjiang, China (45.1° N, 83.4° E: paleocoordinates 7.7° S, 77.4° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Llandeilo (466.0 - 449.5 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From cherts of the Kekesayi terrane, which overlie basaltic hydroclastite, and are overlain by tuff and clastic material. AGE: Llandeilo, on the basis of conodont biostratigraphy. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: From sample T118, near middle of section, at 9-12 m in text-fig. 3 of Buckman & Aitchison (2001).

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; lithified, red chert

• SPECIFIC LITHOLOGY: Red, ribbon-bedded radiolarian chert. LITHIFICATION: Lithified, on the basis of facies description and sample preparation techniques.

Size class: macrofossils

Collected by Buckman & Aitchison

Collection methods: bulk, hydroflouric, sieve,

• COLLECTION METHODS: Processed using standard hydrofluoric extraction techniques. COLLECTORS: Buckman & Aitchison. REPOSITORY: Not stated in text, but possibly the Department of Earth Science, University of Hong Kong.
