Stream sediments, soil and bed-rock samples were collected and chemically analyzed by emission spectrograph for eighteen selected elements. The chemical results were treated with simple and multivariate statistical methods, where copper is shown to be the most abundant element at Nissriyn area, while Zn, Pb, Ag and Bi are associated elements. At Khashm El-Fakh , anomalous values of iron were found beside copper and zinc.
R-mode factor analyses show two factors one is Cu-Zn-Mo-Pb which was termed a copper mineralization factor, while the second factor which is Fe-Be-Yb was considered as a bed rock factor.
