The recognition of geological formations, from a lithological point of view, as well as their tectonic character always remain a major challenge for any precise geological study, in this work we will see the great importance of the application of remote sensing (Landsat OLI, DEM) to realize lithological maps of great interest as well as the realization of detailed lineament maps with the statistics of the performed measurements, the application of some indicated techniques showed a good discrimination of the lithology of geological formations (Fig.8 ,Fig.10,Fig.11),better results and interpretations are also obtained for lineaments affecting the whole area by using the CP1 and DEM methods (Fig.5,Fig.6).Topographic map and geological maps of JBEL SAGHRO DADES and TODGHA MADER (1/200000) gained from ministry of energy and mines, direction of geology (1975), are used for validation of the obtained results by eliminating of artificial structures (roads) and geological layer boundaries. All data sets were pre-processed and projected in the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM Zone 29 North) projection system and the WGS84 datum using GIS tools (ArcGIS 10.2).
