Abstract This paper summarises data about the depositional environment of Devonian quartz sandstones in Latvia and discusses new fieldwork data from Bāle 1 and Bāle 2 sand pits. The commercial bed in these sand pits is composed of fine to gravel size grained white and pale gray sandstones with mud clasts and quartz pebbles in places. Studies in Bāle sand pit sectors 1 and 2 suggest the deposition of sediments in details channel and sand bars, with the scarce influence of tidal processes on sedimentation.
