We saw a couple of the contact points between the Nubian Sandstone and the Basement complex, which is usually hard to see as it either is subducted back into the ground or it is too high to get to because of continental plate tectonics. We also saw quite a bit of rock that was highly pressurized from being so deep beneath ...
