The study area is located in the northeast of neyriz and near the village of Ghori in Fars province. Geologically, the units of the study area are located in the zone-Sanandaj-Sirjan and with the general northwest-southeastern trend. Most of these Units calcareous units, units sericitic - chlorite schist and amphibolite units up. In this research, ASTER sensor images and ground magnetometric data were used to explore and identify iron-rich regions in the study area. In this investigation, we applied methods of False Color Composite (FCC), Band Ratio (BR), Principle Component Analysis (PCA) using ASTER images and areas with severe alterations propellitic, phyllic and sericite. Using methods of ground magnetometric processing, many methods containes reduce to pole (RTP), upward continuation, Analytic Signal, Tilt Angle, Vertical Derivative were used to identify the sources and we were able to identify the edges of these anomalies. In the study area, we were able to identify four anomalies under the ground that it is very important. The results of both methods explored four anomalies. Aster imager process and magnetometric data led to primary potential mineral map of the area. For credibility of results, 52 samples were taken and analyzed by XRD methods. Five boreholes have been drilled to a depth of 140 meters and all results are consistent with each other. The methods used are important and valuable
