Geological mapping and geochemical exploration had been done widely by geologists for chemical or mineral prospecting and it’s relation with earth system. Geological mapping and geochemical exploration are site investigations and technique to identify geological information and the correlation with chemistry. The study area is located at Kampung Pahi, a village which is approximately 9 kilometers from Kuala Krai town. The objectives of this study are to create a geological map and geochemical anomaly map of Kampung Pahi. The geomorphology, stratigraphy, structural geology and historical geology of the study area is determined via geological mapping which involves field observation, rock sampling, measuring parameter and studio work which is ArcMap 10.3. The concentration of iron (Fe), lead (Pb) and copper (Cu) is determined via geochemical mapping which is stream sediment sampling and laboratory analysis which is ICP-OES. The lithology of the study area consisting of siltstone, andesite porphyry, andesite tuff, lapilli tuff, and alluvium in which all of them are aged range of Permian until Recent. The ICP-OES shows the highest concentration out of three chemical element stated is iron (Fe) while the lowest is copper (Cu.)
