Contact of the Mesozoic Evolène Series over the Mont Fort Paleozoic basement in the Roux area at locality [595′420/101′870] (cf. Figs. 68). The basement is formed by a phyllitic quartzite that belongs to the uppermost levels of the Permian Greppon Blanc Fm.. The cover exposes the normal succession of the L. Triassic pure quartzite, M. to U. Triassic dolomite, Early Jurassic bedded limestone and the thick L. to U. Jurassic breccias. The contacts between the formations are concordant although affected by a strong Alpine deformation
