Abstract - The lithofacies association, mainly lithology and depositional sequences of the Brown Shale Unit of
Pematang Group was studied based on recent fieldwork at Karbindo Coal Mine, in Kiliran Jao Subbasin,West Sumatra, Indonesia. The lower part of the Brown Shale Unit consists of coal and limestone facies which were deposited
in a marginal lacustrine area. The limestone was generated by evaporatic processes characterized by the presence of
primary calcite crystals. The upper part of the unit, from bottom to top, is composed of six facies associations, among
all: amalgamated massive thick bedded shales, interlaminated shales and siltstones, interbedded grey and red shales,
fossiliferous shales, massive thick bedded shales, and interlaminated shale and sandstone facies. Those facies were
deposited in a shallow to deep water lacustrine environment, characterized by their lithology compositions, sedimentary structures, and fossil contents. The unit has such as high content of reworked organic matters-bearing shales and
mudstones. Turbiditic sedimentary structures, gastropods, and bivalves are common.
Keywords: Brown Shale, lacustrine, lithofacies, Kiliran Jao Subbasin

The studied area is located in Kiliran Jao
Subbasin, where PT Karbindo Abesyapradhi
coal mine occurs. It is located approximately
60 km to the east of the Ombilin Basin (PT BA
Ombilin), and south-southwest of Central Sumatra Basin (Figure 1). Lithostratigraphically, the
area consists of Pretertiary basement, Paleogene
sedimentary unit, and Holocene deposits, but the
study is more emphasized in the Pematang Group
of the Paleogene sediments (Figure 2). This basin
is a coal producing depression in Sumatra Island.
The main objective of this paper is to recognize
the lithofacies association, mainly to identify

lithology and depositional sequences of Brown
Shale Unit based on a recent fieldwork in Karbindo Coal Mine which is part of the Pematang
Formation as defined by some previous investigators (Aswan et al., 2009; Carnell et al., 2013;
Widayat et al., 2013).
The Pematang Formation was informally
divided into three lithological units consisting
of Lower Red Beds in the lower part, Brown
Shales in the middle part, and Upper Red Beds
in the upper part. Caughey et al. (1994, in De
Smet and Barber, 2005) stated that the Lower Red
Bed unit is composed of sandstones, shales, and
conglomerate, deposited in alluvial and fluvial
environments. The Brown Shale Unit mainly
consists of dark brown to black shales deposited

The succesions are composed of constituents of Brown Shale Unit of the Pematang Formation (Figure 3). The study focused on lithological successions exposed as a working face at Karbindo Coal Mine area. Several researchers. Indonesia. (2014) concluded that the Eocene-Oligocene sediments in Kiliran Jao Subbasin was deposited in lacustrine to brackish environments associated with a coal deposition.
