Old geological maps


The following image shows part of the geological map n° 160 Stavelot-Malmedy.

The following image shows the Stavelot city (upper right corner) that lies, on the northern part, on Permian conglomerate (brown) and on black slates (grey) of the Revin Group (named previously Revinian) in the southern part. The "Revinian" is partly covered by Quaternary alluvial deposits (green) of the "Amblève" river. The dark lines correspond to faults.
