ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A structural section of the northern range of the Cape Fold Belt true to the scale mapped, is constructed; as far as possible according to a definite geometrical method. A stratigraphical column with accompanying type fossils and the different marker horizons used in mapping, is given and described in detail. The structural pattern of the area is analysed and the evolution thereof discussed. From the section the total depth of folding and crystal shortening that accompanied the structural deformation of the "Fold Belt" are computed. An attempt is also made to determine to what degree did isostatic balance exist between the Fold Belt and the geosynclinical depression in Post-Molteno Time.
