Question
Sir could you please shed some light over the formation of Sargodha High and its compositional trends?
If the subject may be too vast then kindly refer me to some books.

Answer
Raj,

Sargodha High is also called Kirana Hills. It has been discussed in 'Geology and Tectonics of Pakistan' by Kazmi and Jan, 1997). 'Petroleum Geology of Pakistan' by I. B. Kadri (1995) includes a section showing the relationship of stratigraphy on either side of the Sargodha High.
