Description :
A statigraphic and structural analysis of the northern border of the Hyblean Plateau (South-Eastern Sicily) has been carried out. This area is characterised by the outcropping of Lower Miocene-Quaternary volcanics and sediments and by a prominent WSW-ENE striking fault system. The structural analysis pointed out the occurence of three tectonic deformation stages characterized by ductile and brittle structures. In conclusion, during the Lower Pleistocene a compressive event, induced by the migration of the external front of the chain, was recorded in the northen sector of Hyblean Plateau. - (NF)
