This paper selected five typical Mesozoic intrusives from the Tongling metallogenic cluster Xiaotongguanshan, Fenghuangshan, Xinqiao, Dongguashan, and Shatanjiao plutons , and made a systemic SHRIMP zircon U-Pb dating for the five plutons, which produced an age range of This work put an accurate constraint on the formation age of the intrusives in the Tongling metallogenic cluster.

Uranium—lead dating , abbreviated U—Pb dating , is one of the oldest  and most refined of the radiometric dating schemes. It can be used to date rocks that formed and crystallised from about 1 million years to over 4. The method is usually applied to zircon. This mineral incorporates uranium and thorium atoms into its crystal structure , but strongly rejects lead when forming.
