In recent years the number of known sources emitting in the multi-TeV regime (from tens to
hundreds of TeV) has increased significantly thanks to facilities like LHAASO and HAWC. These
observations have the potential to change our understanding of particle acceleration processes in
our Galaxy. However, many of the observed sources are still unidentified or poorly constrained
due to the limited angular resolution of these instruments, preventing us from performing a
detailed study of the sources. The ASTRI Mini-Array is an array of nine Cherenkov telescopes
under construction at the Teide Astronomical Observatory in Tenerife, Spain. It will operate in
multi-TeV regime with unprecedentedly good angular resolution (∼ 0.05 deg @ 10 TeV) and a large
field of view (∼ 10 deg in diameter). Here we present the simulations and the spatially-resolved
spectral analysis of a set of sources for which the ASTRI Mini-Array will allow us to identify the
astrophysical objects emitting at these extreme energies.
