The Balochistan is an historical region currently included in three countries: Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran. The Pakistani portion is the largest province of Pakistan and his capital is Quetta.

The Balochistan province represents Triassic to recent strata with different tectonometallic and sedimentary basins like Balochistan basin, part of Indus Suture (Axial Belt), Sulaiman (middle Indus) and Kirthar (lower Indus) basins. Indus Suture separates the Balochistan basin (part of Neotethys) in the west and Sulaiman and Kirthar (part of Indo-Pakistan subcontinent) in the east. Balochistan basin represents Cenozoic flysch, accretionary wedge complex and magmatic island arc system, Indus Suture includes the igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic mélanges. The Sulaiman and Kirthar basins consist of Triassic to recent strata. Balochistan is the richest mineral province of Pakistan. The Chagai-Raskoh magmatic arc and Indus Suture are the richest metallogenic zones in the Balochistan province and also in Pakistan, however the Sulaiman and Kirthar are trying to lead in sedimentary minerals. Balochistan province has large proven reserves of indigenous iron, copper (associated some gold, silver, molybdenum), lead, zinc, barite, chromite, coal, gypsum, limestone (marble), ochre, silica sand, etc, small deposits of antimony, asbestos, celestite, fluorite, magnesite, soapstone, sulphur, vermiculite, etc.
