... ( Fig. 3 ) are widespread in Upper Egypt and can be seen in gebels along the Nile Valley, from Qena in the north to south of Esna. Their thickest development is around Dabibiya where the Tarawan Chalk reaches a thickness of 15 – 20 m and the Esna Shale c. 120 m. Sections through the Thebes Limestone...

... that the division of the Gebel Owaina section into a lower shale unit (the Dakhla Shale), a middle “Chalk” unit, and an upper shale unit (the Esna Shale) is erroneous. El-Naggar went on to state that the Dakhla Shale is a heterogeneous rock unit for it “… includes the Maestrichtian Sharawna Shale, the conglomerate...

...). In the last reference, it is clearly stated (p. 356) that “… El-Naggar, in his work on the type section of the Esna Shales at Gebel Owaina in Upper Egypt (Ms.) has distinguished three zones in the Paleocene on the basis of the planktonic foraminifera. These zones can also be distinguished in world-wide...
