he study area includes Dheri Qasim, Bela Bhadarsha, Pipli, Nalamuslamanan, Doberan and Khad of Azad Kashmir and
Pakistan. The area lies along the western limb of the Hazara-Kashmir Syntaxis in the sub-Himalayas of Pakistan. The study
area is the part of Kashmir folds-and-thrust belt which is formed after the collision of the Indian and Eurasian plates.
The lithostratigraphic units exposed in the project area are the rocks of the Rawalpindi and Siwalik Groups. The Formations
exposed include the Early to Middle Miocene Kamlial Formation, Middle to Late Miocene Chinji Formation, Late Miocene
Nagri Formation, Late Miocene Dhok Pathan Formation, Pliocene Soan Formation, Pleistocene Mirpur Formation and Recent
Structurally, the area is highly deformed. The folds and faults are present in the area. The Rajdahni syncline, Malair anticline,
Malair syncline, Chouk Bourjan syncline, Chouk Bourjan anticline, Panjar syncline and Panjar anticline are the major folds
developed in the area. The folds are isoclinal, tight, open and northwest to southeast vergent.
The major faults in the area are thrust; reverse and strike slip in nature. These faults include Chillayar Fault, Malikpur-Diljaba
Fault, Malair Fault and Jhelum Fault.
