Topology & Geology;
Stratigrafi of Egon Mountain and its surroundings based on lithology contact, stone cutting principle and source of each product. From old to young can be separated into three main volcanic groups (see Geological Map in the pouch):
1. Pre-Egon precipitate
2. The Old Egon Volcanic Deposition
3. Sediment of Young Egon Volcano
The evolving geological structure is a normal north-southeast trending faults that form a cesarean fault and are characterized by hot springs in Bridit Village on the fault line. It is suspected that the normal faults appear before the volcanic activity of Mount Egon. And after the appearance of a cesarean, the Egon Old and Egon Muda products fill the graben formed between two western and eastern fault zones. It is estimated that the faults are still active today. In addition to the north-northeast direction of the structure, there is also a north-western-oriented structural alignment.…
