A detailed study on the microfacies analysis and diagenetic settings of the Middle Jurassic Samana Suk Formation exposed at the Sheikh Budin Hill Section, Marwat Range, Trans Indus Ranges, was conducted. The Samana Suk Formation is mainly comprised of limestones and dolomitic limestones along with some dolomite and intercalations of marl and shale at different levels. The investigation was carried out after collecting systematically a total of 210 rock samples and studying selected 140 thin… CONTINUE READING
