Mineral assemblages and geochemical data indicate that the sediment provenance in Dali Basin was a distally-sourced weathered material from similar to 7.6 to 4.2 Ma and changed to a locally-sourced bedrock after similar to 4.2 Ma. This suggests that the Dali Basin was an open lake from 7.6 to 4.2 Ma and changed to a closed lake at 4.2 Ma. The main reason for this change was intensified normal fault activity in the Dali fault system at similar to 4.2 Ma that resulted in the isolation of the Dali Basin and the infilling of local bedrock around the Diancang Shan massif within the Dali basin. Late Pliocene global cooling, marked by the expansion of northern hemisphere glaciation, further intensified the uplift of the Diancang Shan massif at similar to 3.6 Ma, which exposed Paleogene conglomerates east of the Dali Basin.

The enhanced reactivation resulted in the rapid uplift of the Diancang Shan massif and the rapid infill of the Dali basin by coarse-grained sediments.",
