Abstract
    Stratigraphy and sedimentology of the Lower Carboniferous 'Calcaires A Productus' of the Montague Noire (Massif Central, France). The 'Calcaires A Productus' of the Montagne Noire are microbial build-ups. Two formations are defined and dated respectively as Uppermost Viscan (Upper Warnantian-Brigantian) and Serpukhovian on the basis on corals. That makes these limestones out to be younger than previously stated (Lower and base of Upper Warnantian-Asbian and base of Brigantian) and indicates that the development of the olistoliths and thrusts including them, due to the Variscan orogeny, was at least as young as the Upper Serpukhovian. The Serpukhovian limestones of the Montagne Noire are correlated with the Lanet Limestone (Mouthournet Massif, Corbieres) and Ardengost Limestone (central Pyrenees).
