Name(s) in local language(s):Zaga Ghar


Alpine-type veins, hosted in alkaline granite gneiss of the Warsak igneous complex. Located near Hameed Abad Kafoor Dheri and approximately 5.5 km southeast of the Warsak Dam, about 40 km NNW of Peshawar, NWFP, Pakistan. Zagi Mountain covers an area of approximately 3 x 5 km, with an elevation of approximately 175 m above its surroundings.

Bastnäsite specimens from this locality were originally said to come from Shinwaro, "high in the mountains" of Konar Province, Afghanistan, when they first appeared on the market in 1999. This turned out to be a bogus locality in 2001 (Obodda & Leavens, 2004).


Note:
Although Zagi Mountain is fairly near Peshawar, the capital of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (North-West Frontier Province) and also the administrative centre (but not the capital) of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) of Pakistan, it is not situated in Mulla Ghori (FATA).
