The local geology is complex with at least three generations of folding and lithologies demonstrating variable intensities of alteration.
In the east of the area, exposed bedrock is generally micaceous schist, mostly overlain by shallow alluvial cover. The schist unit contacts with a carbonate and clastic sediment sequence to the west, at a major, almost north-south trending shear zone that appears to be parallel to the local hills. The major structure is locally known as the Ghatol Shear. The shear dips at 50-60 degrees to the west and hosts significant mineralisation. Dolomite or dolomitic marble underlays much of the PL application area. Varying quantities of calc‑silicate and albitic lenses are layered within it. The dolomite is iron-rich (ankeritic) in areas, which appears to be the product of alteration and may be useful as a pathfinder to further mineralisation. This unit hosts significant mineralisation at Panch Mahuri, Delwara, and Timran Mata, which all lie within the Bhukia PL application area. The calc-silicate unit is well mineralised in the eastern part of the area. The calc-silicates in the west of the map area are often finely banded and weakly mineralised.
