Abstract

Dolomite CaMg (Co3)2, is the common rock forming mineral and composed of the carbonates of calcium and magnesium with an equivalent proportion. Dolomite is the primary integral of the sedimentary rock called dolostone and the metamorphic rock called as dolomitic marble. Our method is allowing to confidently determine the location and their boundaries of local geological structures that are likely to contain dolomite resources in the study area of Anantapur, AP, India. Geospatial techniques like Remote Sensing and Geographical Information System are very useful for the estimation of natural resources using the Band rationing techniques.

Keywords: Band rationing, dolomite, remote sensing and GIS, sedimentary, structures
