Forty-five years after the Apollo and Luna missions returned the lunar samples, China's Chang’E-5 (CE-5) mission collected new samples from the mid-latitude region in the northeastern Oceanus Procellarum of the Moon. Our study shows that 95% of CE-5 lunar soil is distributed in the size of 1.40–9.35 μm, while 95% of the soil by mass is distributed in the size of 4.84–432.27 μm. The bulk density, true density, and specific surface area of CE-5 soil are 1.2387 g/cm3, 3.1952 g/cm3, and 0.56 m2/g, respectively. Fragments from CE-5 regolith are classified into igneous clasts (mostly basalt), agglutinate, and glass.

A few breccias were also found. The minerals and compositions of CE-5 soils are consistent with mare basalts and can be classified as low-Ti/low-Al/low-K type with lower rare earth element (REE) contents than materials rich in potassium, rare earth element, and phosphorus (KREEP). CE-5 soils have high FeO and low Mg index, which could represent a new class of basalt.
