Natanz, 1:100000 geological map, is located in northeast Isfahan, in the Urumieh-Dokhtar structural zone. This sheet is a prospective area for Cu, Zn and Pb mineralization. Spatial distribution of geochemical anomalies for mineralization was identified; using  pathfinder elements statistic method. The sample from catchment basin technique was applied on stream data. Then threshold elements were recognized and separated anomalies. The results show a good distribution of Pb, Zn, As and Sb elements close to copper index in the Natanz map. Moreover, fractal model used to introduce new anomalies in south portion of map for future exploration prospecting.
