Field examinations in the western piece of Mukuru zone demonstrate extraordinary auxiliary engravings and high HT/HP transformative nature, and some magmatism. The stone units in the territory incorporate migmatitic gneisses, granulites, amphibolites, schists, charnockites, epidiorites and rocks. The charnockites which are normal in the shear zone and limit regions seem to check the finish of magmatism. Be that as it may, relicts of magmatic rocks mapped at Ubong Community in the investigation territory recommend prior magmatism. The transformative rocks are unequivocally disfigured in a N-S to NE-SW heading with apparition structures, squeeze and swell structures, ptygmatic veins, indicating proof of extensional tectonics. No noticeable contact connection between the migmatitic gneisses and schists was watched. Indicative changeable structures like fine banding/layering of substituting dull and light-hued layers are prominent in gneisses and a few amphibolites while schistosity and profound enduring are available in schists. The geodynamic highlights pervasive in Mukuru region are twisting and changeability. They demonstrate a conceivable petrogenetic connection to southern Obudu Plateau in the north, western Cameroon in the east than Bansara in the west
