On the basis of four associated sedimentary features claimed to be indicative of transportation, Rupke () suggested that Stigmaria lying parallel or sub-parallel to the bedding and with appendices or rootlets still radiating from the main root are allochthonous, and not in situ as generally accepted. This opinion is here challenged. Lenticular beds of conglomerate, the clasts of which consist mostly of Carboniferous limestone and chert, are also present. The depositional environment of the Enville Member is considered to have been a well-drained fluvially dominated plain (Besly, ), being a slightly more arid environment with more sporadic fluvial deposition than in.

Thick conglomerate-dominated successions dominate the geology of southern Isle Madame; most are part of the Horton Group (Tournasian) but some extend as high as the Mabou Group (Visean-Namurian). A lower carboniferous two-stage extensional basin along the Avalon-Meguma terrane boundary: evidence from southeastern Isle Madame, Nova Scotia. A geological map of the Island shows the larger river valleys floored along their lower courses by the younger Carboniferous rock, -clear evidence that the drainage of today was established in pre-Carboniferous time, and that, during the Carboniferous period, at least the lowlands of the present were covered by the sea.

Fission tracks in detrital apatites from the Cambro-Ordovician metasedimentary basement in the vicinity of the Carboniferous-hosted Gays River Pb–Zn deposit, Nova Scotia, provide a record of final cooling during uplift and erosion of the Meguma Zone and constrain the timing of ore formation.

The orientation of the stress field that existed during deformation along the fault trace was determined by the study of systematic fractures in pebbles within Carboniferous conglomerate. Maximum compressive stress was aligned in a NW–SE direction, being compatible with the orientation of the displacement vectors in the fault zone.

This period dates from about million years ago to million years ago.

At that time Nova Scotia was a warn land close to the equator, with many flood plains and wide river.
