    Abstract

    Perlis has many unique geological resources. It has a rock sequence from Cambrian to Triassic represented by four main formations i.e. the Machinchang, Setul, Kubang Pasu and Chuping Formations. Recently, the Mahang Formation was found at Hulu Pauh. A Tertiary continental deposits was also found at Bukit Arang Beds of Tertiary age. Quarrying activities exposed more geological information, such as the boundary of the rock formations and fossils. The boundary between the Setul and Kubang Pasu Formations can be observed at Guar Sanai and Utan Aji. The boundary between the Mahang and the Kubang Pasu Formations is exposed at Bukit Tuntung. The Setul Formation contains a lot of fossils such as stromatolites, trilobites, graptolites, tentaculites and brachiopods. The Kubang Pasu Formation contains bivalves, corals, brachiopods, cephalopods and trilobites of Early Carboniferous in age. The most important fossil in the Kubang Pasu Formation is the Early Permian Monodiexodina (Foraminifera). This is a cold water form found in the Sibumasu Block which formed the southern part of the Cimmerian block which was attached to the Gondwana during the Carboniferous. Quarrying activities in Perlis are still actively progressing, thus more geological heritage information and geosites are undergoing destruction. Action plan must be taken by the relevant authority to protect and conserve these geosites before it is too late.
