Stratigraphic and geophysical analyses of an outcrop at Onikintibi were done with the aim of understanding basin architecture and predicting depositional history. The palynological studies defined the age of the units, and clarified the lithology of the basal component. Three principal lithology types found are conglomeratic sands, compacted ferruginised sandstone, and the weathered basement; these units have resistivity values of >1000 m, >1019 m and <400 m.
