Detailed petrographically studies and microfacies analysis of the Lower Cretaceous Lumshiwal Formation from the eastern Hazara, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pakistan have been carried out from a number of sections. Fourteen microfacies including glauconitic sandstone have been identified. These studies have contributed towards the interpretation of its provenance, diagenetic components combined with the environment of deposit. It can help to understand the difference between the Lumshiwal formation of eastern Hazara with other type sections in Kala-Chita Range and Samana Range by correlating them with respect to environments of deposition.
