The study area is located at Kuala Balah, Jeli lies at latitude 05°27’30” N to 05° 30’00” N and longitude 101°54’00” E to 101°56’30” E which covered 25 km2. The study area is predominantly cultivated area. The objectives of this study are to update geological map with scale 1:25000 and to determine the properties of feldspar as well as to compare it with the industries. Generally this study area consists of phyllite and slate. Muscovite was found dominant in the phyllite rock. The characterisation of feldspar was done using X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The result XRF showed the silica content in the samples range between 70-75 % while XRD analysis clearly shown the peak of feldspar. As conclusion, feldspar from the study area has potential to be used as raw material in ceramic and glass manufacture.
