Tectonic unconformity boundary between upper Cambrian and lower-middle Devonian sedimentary rocks in Quang Han commune

The tectonic boundary between thin-bedded yellow grey aleuritic clayish shale at a 220Ð45 bedding to the southwest of Than Sa formation (∈3ts) and thin-bedded dark grey limestone at a 330Ð55 bedding to the northwest of Na Quan formation (D1-D2nq).

The site shows a tectonic boundary – a NW-SE fault more than 100m wide – between shale of Than Sa formation (∈3ts) and limestone of Na Quan formation (D1-D2nq). In addition, there is a gradual upward transition to limestone of Na Dang formation (D2gv-D3frnd), followed by that of Lung Nam formation (C1ln). Again, the contrast between the young to old karst landforms and the denudation-erosion hilly landform on the terrigenous rocks is also of interest. In addition to the significance similar to that of the previous site, this site shows further upward stratigraphic succession.
