Republic of Macedonia, according to current knowledge, have alluvial deposits of gold that were exploited in the past, unfortunately, long time was not addressed on this tip of deposits. Existence of contemporary geophysical methods, especially high precision magnetometers, gives relatively easy and very efficient possibility for defining the area of alluvial terraces, not only on the existing rivers but, also, in the old riverbed. To define the most prospective areas for detailed research, bearing in mind that the gold and accompanying heavy precious metals are non-magnetic, which are of exploitation interest, almost always, paragenetic, magnetite is present with them. Magnetite as a mineral have the highest magnetic level, according to that is easy detectable. Department of geology and geophysics owns appropriate equipment for geomagnetic profiling and software for analyses of measured data. Areas with registered anomalies should be investigated with schlich method and core drilling in order to define depth of alluvium.
