Description Glaciofluvial accumulation, which forms a terminoglacial fan is described in this paper. The origin of the fan was affected by the adjoining topography, when the ice sheet lied above the side of the Javorná Stream valley in the Zlaté Hory Region. Glaciofluvial sediments were deposited in front of the ice sheet in a fan-shaped form on the valley side. Sedimentary sequence shows the vertical trend from massive gravel in the lower part of the accumulation to well-stratified sand in the upper part. This trend reflects glacier retreat and therefore the recession of the proximal environment of terminoglacial fan. This accumulation developed during the first Elsterian glaciation.
