Rheology or also known as a deformation is the study of respected their stress. In determine the deformation of the rocks, the investigate of the structure geology which includes fault, fold and joints would be the better part in identified the deformation. Bentong – Raub Suture Zone would be the inherited to identified the fault, folds and joints. The research that conducted at highway of Gua Musang – Cameron highlands on kilometer 185, Kelantan as there is no comprehensive structural geology towards tectonic deformation of the study area from the previous research. The study area that been conducted is in a square box shape with 25km2. By focussing on the objective of the this research where to generate geological map of study area with the scale 1:25,000 and to produced structural map by looked at the fault that collected from the prevous research. Most important thing towards this research is to use the measurements of the present day rock geometries to explore and updated the stress field that produced the structure observed in the study area in present day. In this research the method that have been used to conducted this research are by identified in previous research, collecting the information from other agencies and process the data by using ArcGIS 10.8 for presenting the map and Dips 7.0 for collecting the stress system in order to produces the structural map. From the research, there are three types of rocks that can be identified in this study area which is the oldest rocks are schist, phyllite and the youngest one is quartzite. The tectonic deformation in this research can be identified toward the structure,where there are two types of fault in this area which is Thrust Fault happen in the between of schist – quartzite rock and Strike Slip Fault where can be seen in the Brooke’s River that caused by the ESE – WNW principal stress. From the observation towards the stress their show the corresponding to the principal stress of the Bentong – Raub Suture Zone form by looked at the collision between Sibumasu Plate and Indochina Plate in Late Palaeozoic and Triassic.
