Abstract

The Passage beds between the Kubang Pasu Formation and Chuping Formation crops out in Beseri, Perlis. A detailed sedimentological study was carried out at Quarry B from which four facies have been identified. These facies are sandstone interbedded with thin mudstone beds facies, thickly-bedded mudstone, thickly-bedded sandstone with thin mud and bioturbated sandstone. In general the sequence is fine-grained with increasing calcareous content towards the upper part of the Passage beds showing evidence that these facies were deposited in a shallow marine environment. Meanwhile, the relationships among these facies show that there are two trends which can be differentiated by its lithological pattern. There are coarsening upwards trends which indicate depositional that took place on regressing shoreline environment and also fining upwards trend showing that deposition happened otherwise. The recurrence of these sequences overlapping each other indicates a third order regressive and transgressive phase which may take place in the shallow marine environment.
