Fuzzy c-means cluster analysis  ( FCMC ) was applied to the results of a geochemical exploration project where 175 stream sediment samples were analysed for 20 elements, using X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (XRFS ) The FCMC technique allowed to separate the dominant associations of lithologies and specified the background concentration for all lithotypes. Using the residual components of the geochemical signals, the anomalous locations were detected across the study area
