Abstract

Southeast Sulawesi Province is one of the regions in Indonesia that has abundant mineral resources, the availability of several types of minerals is strongly influenced by the diversity of rock formations that make up the area. The metamorphic complex is one of the rock formations in the Southeast Sulawesi Province. Where the rock complex is divided into 2 (two), namely: Pompangeo Complex and Mekongga Complex, the distribution area of this metamorphic rock is estimated around 50% of the total land area of Southeast Sulawesi Province. This rock complex is very possible to contain mineral deposits, one of which is graphite mineral deposits. However, the problem that is now is the identification of the potential for subsurface distribution of graphite excavated material has not been carried out. Therefore, this research was conducted to determine the potential for subsurface distribution of graphite mineral deposits is using geoelectrical resistivity method where is using Wenner-Schlumberger configuration, this research activity was conducted in the Sabilambo Village in Kolaka Regency, where most of the research area is metamorphic complex. Based on the result of the resistivity analysis, subsurface distribution of graphite mineral deposits in the study area can be found on the surface to a depth of 33.5 meters below ground level, with layer thickness between 1.25 to 27.77 meters and has a resistivity value of 14.9 Ωm – 86.1 Ωm.
