Description :
A new geological map the central-western part of the Karakoram belt (Northern Areas and North West Frontier Province, Pakistan) is presented with its explanatory notes. The map is printed at a 1:100,000 scale, summarizing original field surveys performed at a 1:25,000 scale, which result from the first systematic reconnaissance of the area. This work represents the results of several years of exploration studies and is mainly based based on original stratigraphic and structural field analyses focused on one of the less known orogenic belts of Central Asia. Original field surveys have been integrated within a GIS using georeferenced Russian topographic maps and grey-tone panchromatic SPOT images. The study area is located along the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan, extending from the top of the Chapursan Valley of the Hunza region to the Yarkhun Valley from the Karambar Pass to Gazin and to the upper part of the Rich Gol, which belong to Chitral. - (NF)
