Abstract:
Stratigraphic position of Rajpura-Dariba Group of rocks has been worked out by different workers and varied status has been given by them. These different views have been discussed in the present paper, Considering lithology, airborne and ground geophysics and geochronological data in the present paper an attempt has been made to compare these different views on the stratigraphy. On the basis of presence of basal conglomerate, volcanics and variation in the environment of deposition a new threefold classification has been proposed. Stratigraphic status of host lithology has been identified for use as tool for prognostication of base metals in the Rajpura-Dariba Grou[ of rocks.
