Abstract

The research is focused at the Bukit Panau area which is located at the northern part of Tanah Merah district. It lies between the latitudes of N 05°49’21.25” to N 05°54’11.25” and longitudes from E 102°8’48.75” to 102°11’11.25”. Geological mapping and sedimentary analysis have been done to the rock units in the Bukit Panau area by measuring the outcrops exposed at the Bukit Panau area. Lithology and sedimentary structures are the main aspects to differentiate and establish the nature of depositional environment. The Panau Formation sequence is characterized mainly by channel lags, planar cross-stratified sandstone, ripple laminated sandstone, and mudstone and shale in ascending order. The overall succession of Panau Formation sediments suggests that the depositional environment is fluvial environment. The provenance of sedimentary rocks is carried out by plotting on triangular diagram of QFL and classification of provenance types by Dickinson (1985). The provenance of sedimentary rocks from the Bukit Panau area is concluded to be from recycled orogeny.
