Analytical investigations on geological samples collected from the cis-indus range rock samples were done by using XRF and AAS technique. Infrared studies were also carried out on these samples for their structure speculation, which mainly indicated the calcite nature of the mineral. The gravimetric analysis indicated mainly the presence of carbonates and hence the carbonaceous nature of these rocks. The major, minor and trace elements as determined by employing X-ray fluorescence (wd) and atomic absorption spectroscopic studies were Ca, Sr, Mn, Fe, Na, Pb and Zn. The maximum concentrations in these rock samples were found for Ca, which lied in the range of 21-29%. Zinc conoentrations were found to be minimum, and were nearly 0.0001% in all samples.
