The Democratic Republic of Congo, a country renowned for a geological scandal, remains virtually unexplored except for the pan-African chain flowing towards the former province of Katanga. This work remains a contribution to the geological knowledge and the discovery of the mineralization indices in the eastern part of our country, more particularly the geological formations around the thermal spring Lilida. On occasion, 8 rock samples were taken from the field. The results of X-ray geochemical lithochemical analyzes revealed that the mineral geological potential of the formations around the Lilida thermal spring of gold (Au) accompanied the complex Ag, Cd, Hg, Bi, Sn (lithophilic). The presence of tin at a remarkable content in the samples testifies that the locality of Djugu is in the context of the Mesoproterozoic where the Kibarian formations are exposed whose characteristic mineralization is tin.
