It envelopes Zlatogorskiy, Chkalovskiy, Zurikovskiy, Chekhovskiy and Shalkar intrusive massifs of the Zlatogorskiy peridotite-pyroxenite-norite complex. They are composed of gabbro-norites, olivine norites, gabbro-anorthosites with pyroxenites, peridotites, dunites, shristemites, plagioclase pyroxenites, plagioclase peridotites and troctolites.
During research in 1984 small diamonds (0.01-0.07mmm, rarely 0.1mm) were found in outcrops of the massif and in loose sediments and were mainly coincided with dunites and rarely with peridotites. Diamonds were found together with chromospinel, moissanite, graphite, zircon, corundum, garnets.
