The ophiolite is overlain by a conglomeratic interval assigned to the Maastrichtian Qahlah Formation which comprises well rounded ophiolite pebbles and is interpreted as a beach deposit although with fluviatile basal sediments (Fig.
A further implication is that interpretations of pulses of deformation, based on unconformities beneath conglomeratic facies [8], need to be treated with caution.
