A hydrothermal breccia zone 6 km long and 2 km wide, crossed by quartz-tourmaline veins, occurs to the south of the Late Cretaceous Kerkenez granite-monzonite massif in the northern part of the Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex, Yozgat, Turkey. This breccia zone is characterized by numerous veins, a few millimeters to 1 meter in width, and display typical microtectonic features of multiple brecciation. Trace amounts of albite, K-feldspar, epidote, muscovite and rutile are associated with quartz and tourmaline. Petrographic features indicate three successive stages of tourmaline generation. The first generation is represented by feruvite, and the second and third generations consist of schorl. These distinct generations of tourmaline show successive enrichment in Al and Na, and depletion in Ti and Ca. The Na/(Na + Ca) values vary in the range 0.41-0.49 in the first generation, and 0.53-0.86 and 0.91-0.99 in the second and third generations. The development of the breccia zone and formation of three successive generations of tourmaline are most probably related to fluid-assisted brecciation and infiltration of low- to medium-pH hydrothermal fluids under subsolidus conditions. Successive enrichment in Na and Al in the younger generations is ascribed to late-stage fractionation in the B-rich granitic source.

GEOLOGICAL AND GEOCHEMICAL EVIDENCE FOR A LATE CRETACEOUS CONTINENTAL ARC IN THE CENTRAL PONTIDES, NORTHERN TURKEY

In the Central Pontides (Northern Turkey), south of Tosya, a tectonic unit consisting of not-metamorphic volcanic rocks and overlying sedimentary succession is exposed inside a fault-bounded elongated block. It is restrained within a wide shear zone, where the Intra-Pontide suture zone, the Sakarya terrane and the Izmir-Ankara-Erzincan suture zone are juxtaposed as result of strike-slip activity of the North Anatolian shear zone. The volcanic rocks are mainly basalts and basaltic andesites (with their pyroc...
GEOCHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF GRANITOIDS ALONG THE WESTERN MARGIN OF THE CENTRAL ANATOLIAN CRYSTALLINE COMPLEX AND THEIR TECTONIC IMPLICATIONS

The closely related assemblage of igneous and metamorphic rocks that lie within a triangular area approximately bounded by the Tuzgolu Fault, the Ecemis Fault and the Izmir-Ankara-Erzincan Suture and between the lines connecting Ankara, Sivas and Nigde is called the Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex (CACC). The granitoids cropping out within the CACC can be divided areally into three groups: (1) a large number of individual small plutons which form an arcuate set and curve from NE-SW to NW-SE and extend...
Mineral chemistry and thermobarometry of Soltan Meidan basalts, North of Shahrood
Derakhshi, Morteza; Ghasemi, H.; Toksoy Köksal, Fatma (2015-06-01)
Soltan Maidan Basaltic Complex consists of a thick succession of basaltic lavas associated with some thin sedimentary interlayers that are exposed in the northwest to northeast of Shahrood. Soltan Maidan basaltic rocks has been generated from magma with transitional to mildly alkaline nature and derived by 14-20 percent partial melting of an enriched garnet peridotitic mantle source in an intra-continental rift setting during Late Ordovician to early Late Silurian. These basaltic rocks are relatively unifor...
Petrochemistry of the Oyaca-Kedikayasi (Ankara) dacites as evidence for the post-collisional tectonic evolution of north-central Anatolia, Turkey
Bozkurt, Erdin; Winchester, JA; Holland, G; Beyhan, A (Wiley, 1999-07-01)
The Lower Miocene Oyaca and Kedikayasi dacite stocks, unconformably overlain by Plio-Quaternary sedimentary and volcanic rocks, intrude a southward-verging imbricate thrust zone within the izmir-Ankara-Erzincan Suture Zone (IAESZ), approximately 50 km SW of Ankara. These stocks crop out as two petrographically distinguishable plagioclase, hornblende and biotite-phyric dacites. Xenoliths petrographically similar to the Kedikayasi dacite occur within the Oyaca stock, suggesting that the Kedikayasi stock is ol...
Miocene tectonic history of the Central Tauride intramontane basins, and the paleogeographic evolution of the Central Anatolian Plateau
Koç, Ayten; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; Van Hinsbergen, Douwe J. J.; Kuiper, Klaudia F. (2017-11-01)
Marine Lower-Upper Miocene deposits uplifted to > 2 km elevation in the Tauride mountains of southern Turkey are taken as evidence for the rise of a nascent plateau. The dynamic causes of this uplift are debated, but generally thought to be a regional dynamic topographic effect of slab motions or slab break-off. Immediately adjacent to the high Tauride mountains lie the Central Tauride Intramontane Basins, which consist of Miocene and younger fluvio-lacustrine basins, at much lower elevations than the highl...
