"Die Goldswiler-Platten treten nur in der Harderfalte zwischen Ringgenberg und Goldswil auf und gehören in die Helv. Kieselkalk-Fm. Sie entwickeln sich aus den Ringgenberg-Schichten. Wegen seiner Tonsäume lässt sich dieses Gestein in Platten aufspalten und ist deshalb in mehrern Steinbrüchen ausgebeutet worden." S.16
