Abstract

The Cakmakkaya and Damarkoy copper deposits in the Murgul (Artvin) area are typical examples of Kuroko-type volcanogenic sulfide deposits that occur widely in the Eastern Pontide region of Turkey. These deposits are hosted by volcanic rocks in a sequence that consists upward of andesitic lavas, brecciated dacite tuff, covering tuff, and dacite porphyry. Mineralizations occur mainly in the form of stockwork ores that are hosted by brecciated dacite tuff. A thin stratiform ore zone and a gypsum lens occur above the stockwork in the Cakmakkaya deposit.
