Abstract

Rocks of the Singa Formation are widely distributed in Langkawi. The formation dominantly consists of mudstones interbedded with siltstone, sandstone and conglomerate units. the Singa Formation can be divided into ten types of sedimentary facies and four types of facies association. Based on facies analysis, the Singa Formation is interpreted to have been deposited in offshore, offshore-transition and shoreface environments and also in channel. This shallow marine of the Singa Basin are affected by cold climates, because there are glacial sedimentary deposits namely pebbly mudstone facies. This paper will describe and discuss all aspects of sedimentology for this formation.
