Paper Abstract

The Anapu-Tuerê region, in the Brazilian Amazon, is known for the occurrence of mineral deposits associated with mafic-ultramafic rocks. The spatial distribution of these rocks was investigated by integrating airborne magnetic and gamma ray spectrometry data using Geographic Information System (GIS) and fuzzy logic classification. Highest values of relevance fuzzy were associated with mafic-ultramafic rocks mapped regionally by the Brazilian Geological Survey (CPRM). Furthermore, mineral occurrences mapped by the CPRM showed good spatial correlation with the higher values of relevance fuzzy presented in this paper.
