Dikes and pipes of remobilized cornieules within the cornieule evaporitic-complex of the Mont Jovet area (Northwestern alps)

Abstract : Dykes and pipes of remobilized cornieules outcrop widely within the evaporitic complex of the thrust sole of the Mont Jovet klippe, (North-Western French Alps). The morphology, nature, structures and pattern of these rocks are described. The bodies are not linked to erosive processes; they represent inherited morphologies within the gypsum exhumed by erosion. These upstanding pseudo-cornieules very likely originated from fault-related remobilization of primary cornieules from the tectonic contact. A genetic model is proposed to explain the genesis of these pseudo-cornieules, to highlight the possible relationships between these pseudo-cornieules and the other documented types of cornieules.
