  IIRC the late Cretaceous beds there which yield
Macroolithus are separated from Paleocene strata by
one or two disconformities. If there is only one, the
age may be Nemegtian. If two, maybe Baynshirenian.
Macroolithus is known from both periods.

 The age is Nemegtian but there are also Barungoyotian
beds. AFAIK the site has yielded only turtles. There
is a mass accumlation of Mongolemys remains similar to
those at Nogoon Tsav and elsewhere.
