Tite sequence, called tite Meishucun sectin, itas been prpsed as a glbal strattype fn tite bundary. In titis paper we reprt preliminary palemagnetie dala which reveal eigitt reversals.

Lu Huilin, 1984). hus tite imprtance f tite Meisitucun sectin lies in its significance fr glbal stratigraphic crrelatin f the first rder, even if it is eventually nt selected as a glbal strattype. A mngrapit has recently been publised (Lu Huilin et al,, 1984) with citapters devted t lithlgic descriptin, stratigraphic relatinships, palentlgy, istpie ages, and reginal l internatinal crnelatins. Despite titis wealtit f infrmatin nw accumulated abut tite Meishucun sectin, tite precise lcatin f tite Precambrian-Cambrian bundary is still a matter f sme dispute. Tite classical stratigraphic subdivisins f the sectin (Fig, 2) placed the bundany at tite base f the Xiawaitushan Member (e 1y3) f ihe Yuitucun Frmatin (psitin A in Fig. 2), but a secnd imprtaní fssil ccurrence (psitin B) near the tp f tite Zhngyicun Member (e 1y4) ftite Yuhucun Frmatin is currently preferred as marking tite Precambrian-Cambrian bundary, n tite basis f a vte by tite members f tite IUGS-IGCP Wrking Grup # 29.

A ttal f 159 individually riented samples were cllected frm 112 hrizns, using a prtable gasline-pwered drilí and a Bruntn cmpass.
