Abstract

The section of the Brussels-Charleroi canal between Asquempont and Fauquez provides good outcrops of black shales attributed to the Llandeilo by LEGRAND (1967) and dated by MARTIN and RICKARDS (1979) as lower Caradoc using graptolites, chitinozoa and acritarchs.

The detailed study of this section, including its strongly tectonized parts, proves for the first time the presence of distal turbidites built up of the divisions c, d and e from the BOUMA-sequence.

The polarity within the turbidites indicates that the general structure is an overturned anticline and is in fact a synforme with some additional folds.
