The Luliang movement was an intense crustal movement that occurred between the Palaeoproterozoic Era (Hutuo Group) and the Proterozoic (Changcheng Group) 1.8 billion years ago. Strong folding, fracturing, extensive magmatic activity, regional metamorphism and mixed lithologies caused the formation of a significant unconformity. The Luliang movement eventually formed the base of the North China Platform and the unified North China Platform. The Luliang movement was an important tectonic movement in China’s geologic history.
