Spanish term or phrase:coraza superficial gruesa
A estos bancos de material de caliza se les denomina sascaberas (Gary 1988:79; Wilson 1980:11). Aspecto importante de éstas es que presentan bloques naturales de diferentes tamaños que derivan de la coraza superficial gruesa colapsada o desprendida, y yacen en el interior, o en la parte inmediata exterior, de los yacimientos.
