Fifthly, as indicated by the superposition of the Carboniferous formations and their younging towards NE, these beds are isoclinally dipping in that direction.

The peculiar deposition of feldspathic granites over a large portion of this area is suggestive of the fact that rocks have been sharply folded isoclinally causing repetition of bands.
