With the help of regional geochemical exploration results, especially the geochemical maps of different elements, geological interpretation can serve as an important auxiliary means of geological mapping in the North Bayan Mountains, Qinghai Provence, thus significantly improving the mapping efficiency and accuracy. The results show that regular content changes of elements such as some rare elements and rare earth elements like Y, Nb and sulfur group elements as well as iron group elements like Cu, Zn, Cr, Co, and Ni in different units of the Bayan Har Mountain Group can be used as important means in internal stratigraphic division and regional stratigraphic correlation of the Bayan Har Mountain Group. Furthermore, faults can be inferred and mapped; especially hidden faults and regional faults in shallowly-covered areas can be recognized and mapped remarkably effectively by using certain element anomalies with spotted and beaded characteristics along the faults (such as Sb, Hg, Bi and Pb) as well as along the straight boundaries of geochemical divisions (such as Sb, Bi, As and Pb).
