Abstract

The study area is located in Kampung Batu Gajah, Tanah Merah, Kelantan. The study is focusing on granitic body existed around that area which is known as Kemahang Granite. It is well known as one of the biggest granitic body in Malaysia, particularly in Eastern Belt. This granitic body has a contact with a well-known metamorphic rock in Malaysia, the Taku Schist. From data analysis, it can be concluded that the major type of rock found in the study area is igneous rock, particularly granite. The main objective of this research is to produce an updated geological map of the study area and to run geochemistry analysis and interpretation on the granite rocks in the study area. To fulfill these objectives, several methods were used such as field work, thin section of rock and XRF method. The results showed that the granites in the study area have a high content of K-feldspar, quartz, biotite and other minerals. Thus, it can be concluded that the granites is from an acidic type of composition.
