Suites from TF13a and TF18b occur in wave rippled sandstones that interbed of cap the cross-stratified sandstone; relatively organic-rich ripple troughs are preferentially bioturbated.
In the lower part occurs a lens-shaped conglomerate interbed (0-12 cm) with smooth flat pebbles of different dolostones.
Non-conglomerate interbeds form embayments on the rugged coast, and many of these beds pinch out northwestward into conglomerate.

Drilling has identified three primary sub horizontal gold zones; an upper zone at the Permian limestone/Tertiary sediment unconformable contact, a middle horizon at a marble/silty limestone interbed and a lower zone at a volcanic lava/silty limestone contact and a fourth zone of post surface weathering/oxidation of the primary lodes (regolith) occurring in modern karst environment.
This suggests the megaripple sandstone/fine grained sandstone/siltstone interbed sequence formed in a fluctuating shallow-marine environment characterized by fluctuating energy conditions in which deposition alternated between just below and within wave base.
The conglomerate is notably massive and lacks bedding and interbeds as viewed close to the outcrop.
