Locality

Ywangan township, Southern Shan state

Locality Description

The Plateau Limestone in the western part of the Shan Plateau was deposited in three different environmental settings, namely: a shallow carbonate shelf for the deposition of the Dolomitic Limestone Unit (=Thitsipin Formation and Nwabangyi Formation or Thigaungdaung Limestone); a deeper basinal area for the deposition of the Cherty Limestone Unit (=part of the Natteik Formation or Kondeik Limestone); and reefrimmed bypass shelf margin for the deposition of the Reefal Limestone Unit (=part of the Natteik Formation). In stratigraphic mapping, the limestone and dolomitic limestone of the shallow shelf facies, occurring immediately above the Lower Palaeozoic units and containing early Middle Permian corals (mostly waagenophyllids), brachiopods and foraminiferal fossils (particularly schwagerinid fusulines), can be assigned to the Thitsipin Formation.
