The listostratigraphic profile of the area is represented by the Precambrian crystalline basement, and deposits of the Eocambrian
, Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian, Zechstein (Permian), Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous and Cenozoic periods.
Within the study area the Kalabagh Fault juxtaposes the Indian shelf sequence underlain by Eocambrian evaporites against deposits of the Indus River forming west verging folds and northeast dipping thrust and normal faults.
Previous studies of the Kalabagh Fault or KFZ in the vicinity of the Kalabagh Hills suggests that the Kalabagh Fault Zone truncates folds and thrusts in Eocambrian to Quaternary sedimentary rocks cropping out near Kalabagh (Mc Doughall and Khan, 1990).
The sedimentary sequence of the Indian Plate is exposed in SRPFB of Eocambrian

The Salt Range and Potwar Plateau are the external and the most recent expression of Himalayan shortening; a thin skinned fold-and-thrust belt in which Paleozoic to Holocene sediments are shortened above a ductile substrate of thick Eocambrian

The thrust sheet has a flat-ramp-flat geometry extending over about 90 km and riding over a cushion of EoCambrian
