Alpine-type ultramafic rocks dominantly harzburgite with some wehrlite, and minor bodies of dunite are common.

NOTE: Malakand Division was an administrative division of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (North West Frontier Province) of Pakistan, until the reforms of 2000 abolished the third tier of government. The Division included the districts of Chitral, Dir (from 1996 Lower Dir and Upper Dir), Swat, Buner, Shangla and Malakand.

Until 1970 the area was a Tribal Area known as the Malakand Agency.
Despite the constitutional changes since 1970, the expression Malakand Agency is still used, sometimes of the entire area of the former Agency, but more often of Malakand District.
