[아시아경제 영남취재본부 박새얀 기자] Gyeongsangnam-do announced on the 14th that the ‘Creet Twig Cover Production Area in Seonjeon-ri, Sacheon’ will be designated as a nationally designated cultural property, a natural monument.

‘Shenjeon-ri Cretaceous tree branch cover production area in Sacheon-ri’ is a carbonate growth body developed in the Mesozoic sediments in the coastal area of ​​Shenzhen.

Although the formation process is similar to stromatolite (dry heat structure and stromatolite in Yeongwol Mungok-ri, etc.) designated as a natural monument, it has differentiation in its shape and formation environment.

The’Shenjeon-ri Cretaceous tree branch cover production area in Sacheon-ri’ has a cylindrical shape with a tree branch grown as a nucleus rather than a’growth form’.

In addition, the tree branch cover developed in the Shenzhen-ri area is a rare domestic and international case found in sedimentary layers of the geological period, and has a large development scale and good conservation.

‘Sacheon-Seonjeon-ri Cretaceous Twig Cover Production Area’ is scheduled to be finally designated as a nationally designated cultural property, after collecting opinions from various fields during the 30-day notice period, after deliberation by the Cultural Properties Committee.
