The main outcrop of the Jersey Shale Formation [[:File:P992164.jpg|(Figure 1)]] occupies a roughly rectangular area extending eastward from St Ouen's Bay to just beyond St Helier, southward to St Aubin's Bay, and northward to La Ville ès Viberts [598 538] and Handois [636 538]. The eastern margin of the outcrop is marked by the disconformable base of the overlying volcanic rocks. The Jersey Shale Formation is bounded to the north by the north-west granite (St Mary's and Mont Mado types; [[:File:P992190.jpg|(Plate 1)]]) and in the south-west by the south-west (Corbière type) granite; at St Helier, the contact (mainly concealed) is with the granophyre of Fort Regent and the south-east (Longueville type) granite.

East of the main outcrop there are two inliers, one centred on Le Bourg [6876 4910] and another extending for about 0.75 km inland from Gorey Harbour on the east coast [702 503] to [712 503], where the Jersey Shale Formation is in contact with the granite of La Rocque type. Smaller outcrops occur at, and to the south of, Frémont Point [6406 5636]; [634 559]; [639 552], in Giffard Bay [6525 5589], and at Long Echet [6533 5620] and Les Rouaux [6570 5620].
