Occurrence of zircon crystals in Proterozoic marbles, which also host some of the pegmatites in the nearby Nangalam field.
Please note that the zircons do not occur in pegmatites, and also that this locality does not form part of the Dara-i-Pech pegmatite field as some people are led to believe, probably because it is usually associated with Dara-i-Pech. Though, "Dara-i-Pech" only means that the locality is in Pech valley.
Coordinates are those of Manogay town.
