And it seems at least permissible to think, in this context, that La Pintada Sequence (cyclic units, gabbro, diorite), which is the highest part of the intrusive Vizcaino Layered Complex, and its roof, the San Pablo Metamorphic Complex, were also displaced then to their present position along a higher detachment zone, buried at present under the Cainozoic
basin dividing the Sierra of Puerto Nuevo from that of La Pintada.
its contact with the SMF being occupied by a narrow tectonic graben filled with Cainozoic
strata, up to 30 m in thickness.
For poorly defined Cainozoic
unconsolidated material, such as unqualified 'alluvium' or 'colluvium' for which their broad composition is unknown, lithological classes were allocated following reference to existing soil type maps.

This part, covered by Cainozoic
strata, contains the benchmarks Rosochata (ROCH), Kostomloty (KOST), Zrodla (000E), Tyniec Maly (TYMA) and Wegry (WEGY).
Primary salinity in the region is typified by the existence of salt lakes (playas) that developed during prolonged arid periods in the Cainozoic
This problem was partially solved using Cainozoic
microconglomerate and mainly by the use of vaugneritic stones and other plutonic rocks (granitoids), which also were used to definitively reinforce the Roman Bridge and the Cathedrals.
The central and western portion of the study area, the 'Plains', consists of a level alluvial plain of Cainozoic
sediments derived mainly from a network of distributary palaeo-stream channels.
In late 2002 Iraqi geologists announced an exploration programme to cover the Cainozoic
and Mesozoic, to be followed by work on older zones down to the Palaeozoic and Permian Khuff - judging by big discoveries in those horizons made in Iran, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, etc.
