    Explore the Metal Elements of Shahrebabak Based on Geophysical Data and Remote Sensing
    Author(s): Hootan Khodaparast*

    Shahrebabak in Kerman province, in southern central Iran, is located along Tectono-Volcanic strip of Urumieh- Dokhtar. This strip is mainly composed of volcanic and pyroclastic rocks of Tertiary and Upper Cretaceous Ophiolite Melanges have been observed along major fractures on its south western parts. Based on geophysical studies, the Northeastern part of the area is most likely to contain metal elements’ anomalies and the southern part of the region is also among promising areas. Landsat ETM remote sensing survey showed that the Northeastern part of the region show potential mineralization in band ratio techniques, classification methods and also application of PCA and as a result is more suitable for regional exploration. There is a logical connection between fractures in the area and alteration zones which imply the role of faults and magnetic lineaments.. View More»
