  Timing of Collision of the North and South China blocks
Contemporaneous rifting of the South China block and subsequent drifting separated the South Qinling from the South China block during the middle to late Paleozoic.
The North China block proved to be separated from the South China block during the Permian, and the separation presumably persisted until the Late Triassic, because the two blocks began to share the same paleomagnetic pole in the Jurassic, indicating that the collision must have taken place prior to the Jurassic.
In particular, the late stage (Late Triassic) was coincident with the collision of the South Qinling orogen and the South China block along the Mianlue suture zone and was accompanied by widespread intrusion of collision‑type granites (Zhang et al., 1995).

 A second look at the geologic map of China: \the "Sloss approach"
During the Jurassic and the Cretaceous, the Suolon suture was reactivated as the Yanshan fold and thrust belt, on the northern margin of the North China block (Davis et al, 1998, 2001).
To the southwest, the North China craton is sutured against the Qaidam block along the Qilian Shan; the suture marks a collisional event of Devonian age.
In the Jiangsu- and South China fold belts, all stratigraphic ages are represented approximately to an equal degree, with a small preference to the Quaternary due to the "blanketing effect".

This demonstrates that the suture location between the North China Block and the South China Block lies north of the Wulian and Penglai Groups rather than along the Wulian-Yantai fault that marks the northern margin of ultrahigh pressure metamorphic belt.
