Description and interpretation of the facies identified across the Jupiter-Chicotte formational boundary in the Jumpers section Facies Composition Description FA-3 Almagamated Pack/ Packstone/ encrinites (1) grainstone grainstone: Medium- (100%) to thick-bedded
This unit consists of thick-bedded
limestone with low weathering tightly between layers of radiolarian.
Rest of the sequence exposed in the Pind Khan Khel syncline comprises of massive to thick-bedded
dolomite (~400-500 m thick).
conglomerate at The Dock is conformably overlain to the north by thin-to medium-bedded, greyish green, quartzose sandstone, siltstone, and dark grey to black siltstone, and minor quartz-pebble conglomerate of the Flagg Cove Formation.
The territory can be characterized by the relief of the thick-bedded
sandstones with unrivalled varieties of meso-forms of weathering and erosion of sandstones.
4 m) exhibit predominantly medium- to thick-bedded
, wavy or horizontal fine-grained skeletal grainstones alternating with pelletal packstones and skeletal wackestones.
The Tredian Formation overlies the Mianwali Formation the lower part of the formation consists on silty beds and the upper part comprises on thick-bedded
0 cm = thin-bedded, 2-10 cm = medium-bedded and 10-50 cm = thick-bedded
Alternation of dolomite and thick-bedded
Limestone containing pellet, ooid, intraclast
Generally, the territory has a typical relief of thick-bedded
sandstones of the Czech Cretaceous Basin with an unusual variation of weathering forms and removal of sandstones (Balatka and Sladek, 1984).
Medium- to thick-bedded
, microlaminated, argillaceous dolostones with a layer of skeletal-pelletal grainstone with stromatoporoids, corals, oncolites, and calcareous algae in its middle part.
This facies comprises very thick-bedded
and very coarse-grained sandstone and mudstone couplets, which are normally graded (Table 4).
