Move on to Lambir Formation

So, my quest for another rocks continue. This time, we spent a few days in Miri, looking for several formations (eg. Lambir Formation, Setap Shale Formation, blah blah).

If you happen to be in Miri, make sure to check out the outcrop along the Airport Road. This place is world class, and it's a well known place among geologists around the world. It's geological structures are 'text-book' examples. (The city council doesn't put flood-lights facing the rocks for nothing you know...)

For the rest of you, just enjoy the pictures :D

Semantan Formation anyone?

24-26 April 2006. Day 1-3. Activities summary.

The trip is called Geological Transect Field Trip 2006 Karak-Kuantan. When you look at the pictures above, eventhough you didn't understand the geology of the area ( or if you don't know geology at all!), you could appreciate how beautiful the rocks look, right? (Righttttttttttt.....)

For you who interested in it's geology, continue reading.

The trip we went actually took place at the suture zone of the Peninsula Malaysia. Most of the formations we saw were Semantan Formation (marked by tuff and siltstone beds). For more info, I have to look at my field trip manual, thehehehe...
