This study encompasses the area of Katok Batu, Gua Musang in identifying and conducting geological research about geomorphology, lithology, petrography and structural geology. The geological research project is located 4°53'24.81"N and 101°54'35.59"E. The objectives of the research are to produce the geological map of Katok Batu at scale 1:25000, to investigate the gold concentration in Katok Batu and to create an distribution map associated to the concentration of gold that has investigated. The research project was undergoes by doing fieldwork mapping, sampling and laboratory analysis. In fieldwork mapping, the important thing needs to be considered is the reflection of geomorphology, structural geology, and lithology for the rocks. The rock lithology that was found in the research area is the granite, limestone and shale. Besides that, the fieldwork mapping is also conducted to update the drainage pattern and road access by traverse through the study area. Furthermore, in laboratory analysis it covers from hand specimen, petrography observation and mineral identification. Next, the laboratory analysis also includes the sampling at the stream and investigated it the sample by using Flame Atomic Absorption machine (AAnalyst 200) to show the concentration for gold. Additionally, the distribution map is use to show the concentration and location of the sample. Based on the distribution map, it can discover the source of gold metal in a research area. The distribution map is important as it showed for the arrangement of the highest gold concentration for probable location or main deposits location.
