Haftsandoq prospect index is located in 25 km northwest of Takestan city, within Tarom-Sofla Tertiary metallogenic belt. Intrusion of granodiorite to monzonite igneous bodies into the Eocene volcanic/ pyroclastic complexes caused widespread hydrothermal alteration associated with the copper, lead and silver ore mineralization. During supergene alteration the secondary minerals such as oxide/hydroxides (hematite, goethite), sulfides (coverlet), sulfates (anglesite) and carbonates (malachite and azurite) were developed within oxidized zone. The purpose of this study is identifying the possible anomalies of Cu, Ag, Pb, As, Cd, Au in this prospect area. Accordingly, 99 lithic samples taken from a systematic litho-geochemical network were analyzed with ICP-MS method. These results were used to specifying of high mineralization potential districts based on non-structural (correlation, cluster analysis, factor analysis) and structural (fractal charts cutie - area) analyses methods. Consequently, the results of structural (multi-fractal) analyses in comparison of non-structural methods lead to identify three elemental anomalies of copper, silver and lead.
The copper with 4 stages enrichment shows grade 2 and/or 3 anomalies in entire area except for NW. Ag with 3 stages enrichment shows grade 2 anomaly in NW part of district and Pb with 3 stages enrichment shows grade 3 anomaly in SW part of Haftsandoq district.
