Abstract：To solve the provenance issue of Huaqing region Chang6 in Ordos Basin, the material source was determined through the study of the rare earth element characteristic of Chang6 sand and the cluster analysis method. The rare earth element characteristic showed that distribution plots were consistent with distribution patterns of the rare earth element from the upper crust, and different from the characteristic of the lower crust and oceanic crust. It illustrated terrestrial fragments originated from the upper crust. The results of the cluster analysis indicate that main sources had the northeast, east northeast and due north direction, which were consistent with the paleogeographic settings of Ordos Basin.
