Due to thrusting of this anticline the southwestern limb of Muzaffarabad anticline is mostly crushed showing fault breccia
, mylonite, gouge and slickenside of bed rocks.
The tectonic contacts demonstrate abundant evidence for brittle deformation, with the development of cataclasite, fault breccia
, and chatter marks.
The measurements of the coal quality parameters: moisture, ash, calorific value, density, total sulphur, pyrite sulphur and sulphate sulphur were made in the fault breccia
at the distance of 0-10 m from the fault plane.
, if present, should be exposed only in fault zones and its composition should represent a mixture of Lower Silurian to Upper Devonian strata.
Further the southwestern limb of the Muzaffarabad anticline physically shows fresh fault breccia
, mylonite and gouge line and their downwardflow revealing the recent active nature ofthis thrusted anticline.
