A Cambrian section exposed south-east Kerman. The section composed of limestone, marly limestone, dolomite and shale beds .These beds all belong to the Dezu and Kuhbanan Formations.

Biostratigraphical study discovered 11 Redlichia noetlingi for the first time. The faunas suggest Late Early Cambrian age for the lower part of the section. Trilobite fossils from the section south –east Kerman are similar to the faunas of Kuhbanan Formation
