Cross-post; my edits in orange:
A user on the 9ifly posted this regarding to the launch schedule from Xichang for the remainder of the year. Knowing that launch opperations alternate between LC-2 and LC-3 we can determine several things. (The first two launches listed were Tianlian-1 05 and Yaogan-30 Group 10)

August 6th to August 8th: LC-2 - CZ-3B - ChinaSat-2E
Launched August 5; earlier information had launch scheduled August 6, then 9.

August 23th to August 25nd: LC-3 - CZ-3B - ?

September 8th to September 9th: LC-2 - CZ-3B - ChinaSat-9B
Earlier information had launch scheduled for September 7 and 8.

September 23rd to September 25th: LC-3 - CZ-3B - ?

October 16th to October 18th: LC-2 - CZ-3B - ?

November 2nd to November 4th: LC-3 - CZ-3B - ?

November 26th to November 28th: LC-2 - CZ-3B - ?

December 13th to December 15th: LC-3 - CZ-2D - ?

December 29th to January 1st: LC-2 - CZ-3B - ?

Another mention at the same link, dated August 14. Google translate is unclear; is this the news of the satellite's arrival at Xichang?
Same spaceflightfans.cn link
Also includes coverage maps.

Edit August 21
The 9ifly thread dedicated to this launch states that an An-124 flew from Beijing to Xichang on August 1 to deliver Zhongxing-9B.
