The Mesozoic Yanshanian Movement affected the tectonic evolution of the North China Craton (NCC). It is proposed that Mesozoic cratonic destruction peaked ~125 Ma, possibly influenced by subduction of the western Pacific Plate beneath the Euro-Asian Plate in the Early Cretaceous. The southern Jinzhou area in the eastern block of the NCC preserves records for the tectonic events and related geological resources. Studies of the regional stress field evolution from the Cretaceous to Cenozoic can enhance our understanding of the tectonics and dynamics of the NCC. Borehole image logging technology was used to identify and collect attitudes of tensile fractures from 11 boreholes, which were subdivided into four groups according to dip directions, i.e., NNW-SSE, NWW-SEE, W-E and NE-SW. Their development was mainly controlled by the regional tectonic stress field while temperature, lithology, and depth contributed to some extent. The area was characterized by NNW-SSE- and NWW-SEE-oriented extension in 136-125 Ma in the Early Cretaceous. Subsequently, it has successively undergone W-E- and NE-SW-oriented extension in 125-101 Ma and after 101 Ma. This counterclockwise trend has persisted to the present, probably related to oblique subduction of the Pacific Plate and is characterized by ongoing nearly N-S-oriented extension and NEE-SWW-oriented compression.
