Supacrustal rocks in the Kathleen Valley – Lawlers District comprise mafic and ultramafic volcanic rocks with intercalated felsic volcanogenic rocks and black slates that are overlain by conglomerate – a typical succession in an Archaean greenstone belt.

There is an older association of theoleiitic sills and lavas with some komatiites; and a younger syngenetic komatiite-associated nickel sulphide mineralisation occurs. Three structural domains are recognized.
