A petrographic study of the sediments of Ghazij formation, supplemented by field observations, has been made with a view to studying the environment of sedimentation in the Ghazij basin. It is concluded that the sediments were formed in marine and fluviatile environments. The principal source area lay to the north-west of Harnai and a palaeogeographic reconstruction of Ghazij times is attempted.
