Summary

The middle Proterozoic Bangemall Group is subdivided into three vertically juxtaposed subgroups which reflect major phases of the basin’s tectono-sedimentary evolution.

The distribution of sedimentary environments in time and space was controlled by regional tectonic events, and shows a cyclic pattern.

The evolution of the basin shows similarities to that of failed rifts.
