In order to execute the contract between Overall Mineral Exploration Program and TOSCO at 1999, an area that was 1 Sq. Km was selected for lithogeochemical and heavy mineral exploration. This area was selected based on the previous studies done by Techno-Export Company and GSI in the Kalkafi-Khuni district for gold and base metals.
1:1000 lithogeochemical sampling was done in a network of 50*100 m, totally 178 samples. 28 samples were taken from veins and mineralized zones. Heavy mineral samples include 17 ones. 206 specimens were analyzed for gold and Cu, Mo, Pb, Zn and Ag.
The report includes a description of analyses result, data processing and statistical process for identification of anomalous zones.
