The Kuloprogo high is also a fairly complex area of alteration and mineralization. A study of geological structures at Kulonprogo high was conducted to determine the structural control of alteration and mineralization and further investigation of the potential availability of valuable metal minerals in the area. The study was conducted with alignment interpretation through Remote Sensing Geology, Geophysics and measurement of geological structure data. In the result of the research. The presence of the mineralization is controlled by two tectonic phases that develop in the area. This is evidenced from geological mapping and alteration where the acquisition of mineral alterations that characterize the presence of mineralization. Hydrothermal alteration in the research area is silicification, argillic and prophylitic. Based on the characteristics of alteration and mineralization, the study area is included in low sulfidation epithermal type. It also appears on the Remote Sensing results where the targeted mineral distribution to be searched shows the distribution patterns trending to the structures geology that develop in the area . And from geophysical data showing a destructive magnetite pattern following along the structural zone as an accumulated container of gold and base metal.
