Dutwa lies in the Kilimafedha (Swahili for "money hills") greenstone belt of the Lake Victoria Goldfields. The greenstones, of Archaean Nyanzian age, are mostly metamorphosed volcanic and sedimentary rocks, with some banded iron formation in the east. Several large ultramafic bodies, possibly of early Proterozoic age, are intruded within the greenstones, and in a number of instances surficial nickel laterites have form on top of these.
