In this thesis the sedimentary origin and the tectonic overprinting at the contact between the Bundschuh crystalline (basement) and the Stangalm Mesozoic (cover) around the Ochsenstand (Nockberge, Kärnten) was examined. The eastern pendant (the Upper Austroalpine Pfannock span) was also distinguished in its facies, lithology and its deformation history from the juxtaposed Stangalm Mesozoic. Not only heterogeneous mineral content, but also differences in the arrangement of the magnetic minerals were recognized.The Alpidic deformation indicators in the sediments of the Stangalm Mesozoic, but also within the Pfannock units, clearly point to a tectonic demand. Primary circular quartzgrains, for example, got deformed secondarly by general shear and pressure solution, what finally resulted in an elongated grain shape.By contrast the magnetic minerals (AMS bearer) settled mainly along the shearbands, what has a big influence in the interpretation of the history of deformation.Because as soon as the strain markers show a preferred orientation, strain data just serve in a limited way.T-P plots (counterpart to the Flinn diagram) reveal a strong grain form variance on the first sight, but on closer consideration the main differences were found just in the storage geometry.Next to that, also the conglomerates of the Pfannock span were examined. By reference to the lithological similarities as well as because of the indicators of a short way of transportation, the Pfannockgneiss was interpreted as a source material for its sedimentary cover. The resulting theory about the gneiss as origin of the conglomerate counterposes the interpretation of Tollmann (1977), who described the Carboniferous as the inverse limb of the Gurktal nappe.
