The Sitas area contains rock derived from the pre-Caledonian Scandinavian craton and from an accreted Caledonian fore-arc complex. These rocks form the par-authocthonous (?) Rombak Complex which can be tied stratigraphically to Baltica and three allochthons which from the base upwards are: the Storriten Complex, the Langvatn nappe and the Marko nappe. The Storriten Complex is a schuppen-zone composed of rocks derived from hinterland equivalents of the Rombak Complex while the Langvatn and Marko nappes are part of an accreted fore-arc terrane which can be correlated with parts of the Middle Køli Nappe Complex (MNKC). The Marko nappe contains mafic rocks whose geochemical affinites suggest derivation from both MORB-like and arc-like sources.
