Abstract: 

The Padala Formation represents the sedimentary filling of the Padala graben. It is built up mostly of polymictic breccia and conglomerate interbedded with thin sandstone beds containing coalefied plant debris and thin coal lenses. The formation is of Palaeogene age. The Padala Formation belonged to a larger Palaeogene basin, and was situated close to the source area of the terrigeneous material.

Она сложена главным образом из полимиктовой брекчией и конгломератом прослаивающемися тонкими песчаниковыми пластами, содержащих углефициранованных растительных фрагментов и небольших линз углей. Свита – палеотенового возраста. Она являлась частью большего палеогенового бассейна, и была расположена вблизи от источников терригенного материала.
