Abstract : The Copper mineral has various uses and it's demand in India is found to be increasing. Copper is essential for human beings, animal and all living organisms. Copper in metal form is also very important. Finding traces of this mineral in India will increase the country's mineral resource and can be used for mining operations. The mineral is generally found in ores like cuprite, azurite, chalcopyrite, bornite and malachite. Copper's property of corrosion resistance and good conductor of heat and electricity makes its purpose most important in the construction field. Using hyperspectral remote sensing techniques, the presence of copper in basavanakote, karnataka is found. The hypespectral remote sensing technique gives high resolution because of its continuous 242 bands. The data is obtained from the USGS - Earth Explorer. This data is being processed using the ENVI software. The presence of copper in the study area is determined by spectral analyst technique. It provides a probability score of 79.43%. The obtained result is then validated using a Spectoradiometer.
