This paper deals with the potential of low cost American KH-4B stereoscopic intelligence satellite photographs (IS) for creating red-green stereo-models and large mosaics for high-resolution structural mapping of extensive areas. These data are used together with, and merged with, Landsat 5 TM data for the identification of exploration targets in a 100 km by 120 km wide study area. Stereo-models revealed valuable information by increasing the number of mapped structures by about 40% and aiding in the identification of dipping even of small- and high-angle structures. Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM)-derived AlOH- and MgOH-alteration mineral anomalies are connected with major fault systems mapped in the IS-mosaic and stereo-models. The relationship between mine distribution patterns and major fault zones and the frequency of lineaments and their intersections were found. From this, further exploration targets could be addressed.
