Geological studies of the Silimpopon syncline. southeastern part of Sabah, offer an opportunity to exploit the potential of the coal rich sequence of the area. On the basis of the characteristics of the sedimentary sequences and their stratigraphic position, a model is proposed to explain the sequential trends, taking into account the importance of sedimentology and sedimentary environments associated with lateral and vertical changes according to the distribution pattern. During the Miocene, shallow marine environments prevailed most of the area to allow the formation of thick sedimentary facies. Early Middle Miocene tectonism has extensively affected the early Miocene sequence, the Kalabakan Formation that acts as the receptacle of the younger clastic sediments. The entire area was slowly emerged and several local extension basins developed in the early Upper Miocene. After the tectonism, the area was the scene of the beginning of the shallow marine deposits, the Kapilit Formation. The formation consists mainly of dark to light gray, low angle to moderately disturbed clastic sequence. Throughout the Late Miocene and the Pliocene ,strike-slip tectonics in Sabah resulted in the local extension, giving rise to extensive deposits of thick clastic facies associated with thick coal beds for future energy exploitation.
