Abstract

The Huqf Group is subdivided into five formations corresponding to an alternation of clastics and carbonates deposited in essentially shallow marine to supratidal (or fluviatile) conditions and terminated by an evaporitic sequence. Regional correlations suggest that the predominantly carbonate-evaporitic facies was widely distributed in late Precambrian-Early Cambrian time: the Huqf basin is tentatively considered part of a belt of evaporitic basins and intervening carbonate platforms which stretched across the Pangea landmass.-from Authors
