The Queenstown-Zeehan-Rosebery area is geologically complex. It lies on a belt of folded Ecocambrian and early Palaeozoic rocks which were deposited in the Dundas Trough, a rift structure which developed between the metamorphosed Precambrian rocks of the Cradle Mountain- Frenchmans Cap area ( Tyennan Nucleus ) to the east and the relatively unmetamorphosed Proterozoic rocks of t he Rocky Cape Geanticline to the west .
