Mineral exploration in the Tutizar
The study area is one of the six identified geochemical anomalies in the 1:100000 sheet of Aran. The area was selected after compilation of geochemistry, heavy mineral and field data. The study area is located 40 Km away from SE of Qom, between 500000 to 504594 longitude and 3799116 to 3808357 latitudes of UTM zone 39N. Lithology of the area includes Eocene volcanics and Oligo-Miocene intrusive rocks. Geochemical, heavy mineral and mineralized samples were studied from the area. The sampling network was designed based on the drainage system, lithology, alteration and structures. Sampling density was 7-8 and 1-2 samples per square kilometer for stream sediments and heavy minerals, respectively. Total area is 85 Km2. totally, 212 geochemical samples, 66 heavy mineral samples and 48 mineralized samples were studied. These samples were analyzed for Au, As, Sb, Hg, Mo, W, Cu, Pb, Zn, Ag, Sn and Bi. The report contains the result of data analysis and recommended zones for further exploration.
