Presented in this paper are the newly obtained grain zircon U-Pb ages of volcanic rocks of the Luliang Group and associated Kuanping granitic migmatitic gneiss in Shanxi Province. The zircon U-Pb ages of bimodal volcanic rocks (basalt and rhyolite) of the Upper Luliang Group indicate that the rocks erupted at about 2100 Ma. So the Lüliang Group was formed during the Early Proterozoic. In the area studied the second-stage metamorphism experienced by the Lüliang Group is the dominant one which took place at about 1806 Ma, i.e., during the late Early Proterozoic.
