This study is about two stratigraphic sections of the Sarvak Formation, namely Kuh-e Khane-Kat and Kuh-e Shah-Neshin sections. Over 250 meters of the Sarvak Formation and 200 thin sections have been studied. Index microfacies and foraminifers have been identified. Index microfacies include: mudstone, wackestone, packstone and grainstone. The amount of bioclasts have been determined as larger than of the other microfacies elements. Based on micropaleontological data, the age of the Sarvak Formation is Cenomanian.
