It was previously known as the "Lower Nemegt Beds", occurring beneath the Nemegt Formation and above the Djadokhta Formation. It is approximately 4 inches in thickness and was laid down roughly 80-71 mya, making it uncertain whether it should be classed as Campanian or Maastrichtian, although the latter is less likely. The Barun Goyot Formation preserves an environment of sand dunes, created from wind-eroded rocks. To date, the most famous fossil specimen to be unearthed from the formation is that of Velociraptor mongoliensis.
- Conchoraptor gracilis - oviraptorid
- Hulsanpes perlei - maniraptoran (bird?)
- "Ingenia" yanshini - oviraptorid
- Velociraptor mongoliensis - dromaeosaur
