Several initiatives intended to highlight the geological heritage have been recently developed in the Liège province (Belgium). The Ampsin and Tchafornis (Engis) geosites rank among them. The Ampsin geosite shows the clear-cut passage between the shallow carbonate facies of the Middle Viséan and the terrigenous detrital facies of the Namurian. The Tchafornis geosite gives the opportunity to observe a superb example of biostrome with large colonial rugose corals of the base of the Upper Frasnian (Upper Devonian). Both are located in disused quarries and also give prominence to the regional extractive industry. [less ▲]

Origin of megaliths of the Fond de Quarreux (Ardenne, Belgium). Distribution of megaliths was studied in the Ambleve valley throughout its gorge developed within the quartzites of the Cambrian-aged La Venne Formation (Fond de Quarreux) in the south-eastern part of high Belgium. The high concentration of megaliths at this place can be essentially explained by mass movements which have occurred on the adjacent slopes in periglacial periods of cold Ocean Isotopic Stages in Quaternary times, and especially the coldest ones i.e. even O.I.S.#22 through #2. Stratigraphical studies of deposits in the Chefna and Ambleve valleys allowed us to place final periglacial deposits during the Younger Dryas. The critical shear stress and the critical unit stream power are used in order to evaluate the Ambleve River competence. It results that, under the present climatic conditions, this river cannot move boulders of more than 50 cm in diameter. Hence, it is concluded that ice rafting has been the main process responsible for carrying away the megaliths which have got the Ambleve river bed throughout the Quaternary Period. [less ▲]

The new geological map of Wallonia permits to obtain a more global view of the tectonic organization of the Palaeozoic terrains around the Variscan Front in southern Belgium. This zone oriented WSW-ENE and passing south of an axis Charleroi-Namur, was firstly highlighted by the coal mining works, but has been significantly documented notably through deep boreholes and seismic profiles. A coherent structural sketch of the Variscan Front is proposed for its entire longitudinal course, where the following structural units are distinguished, from north to south: the Brabant Massif and the base of the cover unaffected by the Variscan orogeny, the Brabant Parautochthon, the Haine-Sambre-Meuse Overturned Thrust sheets (HSM-OTS) and the Ardenne Allochthon. Undeformed terrains during Variscan event constitute the northern border of the Variscan Front. The Brabant Parautochthon includes Devono-Carboniferous terrains, which are folded and faulted. The HSM-OTS are formed by the superposition of several sheets (e.g. La Tombe sheet), which are supported by various thrust faults (e.g. Masse fault). The Ardenne Allochthon, which has been displaced during the Variscan orogeny, rests on the Brabant Parautochthon and the HSM-OTS through a faulted zone, which is locally known as the Midi Fault.

The Upper Frasnian sequence of the Namur–Dinant Basin in southern Belgium consists of mixed siliclastic–carbonate succession of a ramp setting, where the sequence spans the rhenana–linguiformis conodont zones. Earlier studies investigated the chemostratigraphic variations during the Frasnian-Famennian event, but little has been yet known about the nature of the counterpart variations that immediately preceded that time interval. Despite the scarcity of well-preserved brachiopods, sixty–one calcitic shells were collected mainly from beds of the Neuville and Les Valisettes formations (Lower and Upper rhenana zones), to investigate biochemostratigraphic profiles of oxygen-, carbon-isotope and rare earth element (REE) variations of the time interval immediately before the Frasnian-Famennian boundary. The δ18O and δ13 C values of the well-preserved shells range from − 9.5 to − 5.6 ‰ VPDB (− 7.7 ± 1.1, n = 33) and from − 1.8 to 3.8 ‰ VPDB (1.1 ± 1.7, n = 33), respectively, which are within the documented global values. The C- and O-isotope profiles exhibit parallel shifts, particularly at the top of the Neuville Formation (top of the Lower rhenana Zone), which are associated with a sea-level rise and shrinkage in the brachiopod community. Also, the Th/U (0.9 ± 0.6, n = 16) and Ce/Ce* (2.2 ± 0.5, n = 16) ratios suggest deposition under reducing conditions consistent with sea transgression. [less ▲]

Trilobites of the family Lichidae are relatively poorly diversified within the Eifelian mixed siliciclastic-carbonate succession of the southern margin of the Dinant Synclinorium (Belgium). Until now, they were only represented by species belonging to the genera Ceratarges and Eifliarges. The recent discovery of a well-preserved specimen within the Eifelian-aged Jemelle Formation in the Couvin area led us to propose the first detailed description of a representative of the genus Ohleum (Ohleum magreani sp. nov.) in the Ardennes.

The new geological cartography campaign of the Walloon Region, which has begun in 1990, is mainly based on recent field data. Each map is published on 1:25,000 scale and is accompanied by a explanatory booklet where lithostratigraphy, tectonics, hydrogeology and mineral resources are described. These maps are very useful in every human activity involving the knowledge of the underground such as mining, management of dumpsites, civil engineering, etc. [less ▲]
