The aim of our study was to characterize the gold deposits found in the Hambol region. SRTM and Landsat images have summers used in this study, through specific treatments. Image processing techniques, the algorithm LDS and calculating the roughness index helped to understand the geology and tectonics of the region Hambol. The lower altitudes and areas and other geological formations such as quartz and hydrothermal alteration rocks were correctly identified. All these results enabled us to offer gold concentration areas and guidance for prospectors.
