In an try to give a contribution to the geological-structural mapping of the metamorphic massif Isla de l. a. Juventud, with emphasis on acid magmatism, the gravi-magnetometric info is used. in accordance with the consequences, the presumed submit metamorphic granitic our bodies of low density can be found, in general, within the significant and southwestern a part of the massif. The granitic our bodies it sounds as if have been brought in the course of the method of longitudinal faults (syn metamorphic) and transverse (post metamorphic) on the finish of the method multyfolding and metamorphism of the massif sequences, taking a number one position the deep longitudinal fracture zones of sublatitudinal path within the relevant and southern a part of the massif. at the map of the magnetic box vertical spinoff  the anomalies, primarily, mirrored the path and bounds of the folded tectonic constitution, the advance zone of ​​ volcanogenic rocks, the presumed improvement zones of migmatitic rocks and tectonised rocks in North and middle of the massif, respectively, and the existing path of the most tectonic dislocations.
