In the Kwintelooijen sandpit, located in the inside of a large ice-pushed ridge, a number of thrust sheets are exposed which were formed by pushing inland ice during the Saalian glacial time. In these glaciotectonic units periglacial and fluvial Lower Pleistocene deposits fluvial middle Pleistocene deposits and fluvial mass flow and alluvial fan Saalian deposits are involved.
