We thank Daniel Petráš for his comments on our manuscript. He pointed out an important issue regarding complex burial and diagenetic events, which will most probably result in multiple crystallization history, perplexing the interpretation of both bulk and in-situ analyses. The in-situ U-Pb dating may resolve some of the problems that arise in bulk analyses but may not work successfully to all dolomites. This is particularly true in cases of open system epigenetic dolomitization, which

In our study, this behavior is reflected by a wedge plot on the Tera-Wasserburg diagram, which represents a mixture between several recrystallization events. In contrast, a closed system multi-crystallization behavior may produce a single population on a TW pots. We will include a short discussion on this issue in the revised manuscript. C1
