L I U Chengdu Institute of Geology and Mineral Resources, Renmin bei lu, Chengdu, Sichuan, China ABSTRACT The early Sinian (late Proterozoic) black manganese carbonate deposits of the Datangpo Formation are distributed in eastern Guizhou and western Hunan provinces. The formation comprises a belt extending for over 600 km along depositional strike and 150 km perpendicular to strike. The manganese deposits are located in a rift belt on the margin of the Yangtze Craton. The Datangpo Formation is interbedded between two sequences that have been interpreted as glacial diamictites.
