STOP #9 BUKIT ABU, DABONG
Sedimentary rocks here were representing by shale, mudstone, siltstone andsandstone. The bedding between these sedimentary rocks shows uniformtilting and dipping. Since this outcrop is not so far from Gua Ikan, Dabong webelieve that sediment here is also from marine depositional environment.
STOP #10 SG SAM, MANEK URAI
Type of rock here is dark-coloured andesite. Andesite is intermediate volcanicrock with major mineral composition is mafic which is pyroxene. While felsicmineral called pyrolusite become the minor mineral. Mafic: felsic ratio is 2:3.Texture for andesite could vary from aphanitic to porphyry texture. However,most of andesite here has fine grained which makes them be considered asaphanitic rock. Because of aerobic condition that present here, oxidationprocess and weathering can takes place. Because of oxidation, iron oxidedeposited and further weathering turn andesite into red.

STOP #11 KUALA BETIS, GUA MUSANG
Another example of interbedded sedimentary rock showed here. Outcrop hereshowed black shale interbedded with sandstone. Black shale here is thickerthan sandstone. The shale looks a bit tilted for its bedding. Something that ismore interesting that was found here is dissemination of pyrite nodule,FeS
. Pyrite nodule is considered cubic in crystal system. The colour of
pyrite could be same as gold. Being known as fool’s gold, pyrite can be
distinguished with gold by its hardness. Pyrite could have harness of 6 to 6.5while gold is much softer with 3 to 3.5 for its hardness. There is also fossilremnant called crionoid. The environment deposition is deep marine withanaerobic condition due to pyrite.
STOP #12 POS BLAU, GUA MUSANG
Followed the stop before this place, black shale is also present here.However, instead of sandstone, light grey limestone was found inter-beddedwith the black shale. Distinctive feature that present here is crisscrossing ofcalcite. The crisscrossing actually results from mode 1 fracture as the fractureis filled by molten calcite and later be recrystallized. Same as in Kuala Betis,we predict that outcrop here is formed by marine deposition
