  Paleomagnetic and rock magnetic study has been conducted on the Early Triassic red beds of Liujiagou Formation from Jiaocheng,Shanxi Province.Hematite was shown as the main magnetic mineral.After eradicating an initial viscous component at room temperature to~100℃-200℃,thermal demagnetization shows that most samples contain two remanence components,intermediate-temperature remanence component at 250℃--500℃and high-temperature component at 500℃-680℃.The intermediate-temperature component has a negative fold test at the 95%confidence level.And the pole position of the intermediate-temperature component in geographic coordinates is correlated with the Middle Jurassic reference pole of the North China Block(NCB) within the 95%confidence,suggesting that it might be a remagnetization component acquired during the Yanshanian period.The high-temperature component contains both reversal and normal polarities with positive fold test and C-level positive reversal test at the 95%confidence level,which suggests that this high-temperature component can be regarded as primary magnetization.Comparison of this newly obtained Early Triassic paleopole with the coeval mean pole of the Ordos Basin suggests that a locally relative rotation may have happened between the Ordos and the Jiaocheng area of Shanxi Province.This rotation may be related with two faults:one is Lishi big fault separating Ordos from Shanxi and the other is Jiaocheng big fault, which is situated in the southeast of sampling locality and was still in motion during the Cenozoic.……
