From the two options it looks like D

D is correct. It is the findings that are consistent with the growth of industrial activitiy, not the sediments itself.

it is the deposit findings that are consistent with the industrial growth, not the sediments. also E uses 'there' which does not provide a clear reference. hence, E is incorrect.
