Abstract

We thank Zeng and Yan (2014) for their interest in our recent paper "Petrogenesis and geochronology of Cretaceous adakitic, I- and A-type granitoids in the NE Yangtze block: Constraints on the eastern subsurface boundary between the North and South China blocks". However, Zeng and Yan (2014) have misinterpreted some available data and literature regarding the basement in the Yangtze block. After carefully rechecking available isotopic data for the Precambrian basement and providing additional arguments, we show that their arguments are not correct, and confirm that our viewpoint on the source of the Chuzhou adakitic rocks and eastern subsurface boundary between the North and South China blocks remains valid.
