Neoproterozoic volcanics and granitoids formed at Rodinia margins within a time span of 880 Ma–700 Ma, are well-documented in many terranes of the southern Central Asian Orogenic Belt (CAOB). Ages younger than 550 Ma corresponding to the opening of the Terskey Ocean are also common. However, so far, there were very few published ages in the range 700 Ma–550 Ma from the Kyrgyz Tien Shan. In this paper we present new data for the alkaline Chon-Ashu complex emplaced at the end of the Cryogenian Period of the Neoproterozoic (850–635 Ma, Gradstein et al., 2012). The alkaline complex intrudes the Precambrian metamorphic rocks north of the Nikolaev Line which separates the Northern and Middle Tien Shan terranes in the eastern Kyrgyzstan. The undeformed shallow level alkaline rocks range from olivine gabbro to nepheline and cancrinite syenites and leucosyenites. The differentiated rock assemblage can be explained by fractional crystallization of high-silica mineral phases which drives nepheline-normative melts away f
