- A thick fault breccia separates it from the overlying Qomolangma Formation.
- Such breccias can be called sedimentary breccias to differentiate them from other types of breccia, e . g . volcanic and fault breccias.
- As the rock fractured and the two sides moved against each other, cavities were created, partly filled with broken rock ( fault breccia and fault gouge ).
- Zones of fault breccia and fault gouge in rocks can be a hazard for the construction of tunnels and mines, as the non-cohesive zones form weak places in the rock where a tunnel can collapse more easily.
