Re: Age of the Barun Goyot, Djadoktha and Nemegt Formations

<This makes no sense; they couldn't be contemporaneous. The Nemegt overlies the

Campanian-basal Maastrichtian in age and the Nemegt late early-mid
Maastrichtian.>

  So the distinct geologies must span several million years and not be rapid
and short-interval formations for ... what reason again?
