Ivanac, J.F., Traves, D.M. & King, D., 1952. Preliminary report on the geology of the north-west portion of the Gilgit Agency, Pakistan. Record  1952/033. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Three geologists left Australia in 1951 to conduct geological surveys in Pakistan, under the auspices of the Colombo Plan which provides technical assistance for member countries in South and South East Asia. The main objects were to conduct an economic and general geological survey of a selected part of the Gilgit Agency, to examine the alluvial-gold prospects of the Chitral River, and, if time permitted, to discuss the Sind and East Bengal lignites with the Director of the Pakistan Geological Survey. This report is confined to the geological surveys in the Gilgit Agency. In June 1951, the party commenced field work from Gilgit, and spent three month in the region. Several reported mineral occurrences were examined in the Hunza, Nagir, Gilgit, Haramosh, Gupis, Ishkuman, and Yasin areas; a regional geological survey of approximately 5,000 square miles was completed.
