To determine the continuity of known Fe-rich emery horizons and to explore new deposits in the Elmacik area (Yatagan, Turkey), a geophysical survey was carried out using magnetic and electrical methods. Magnetic measurements were taken in the target area of 5 km(2) and a vertical electrical sounding technique was applied at 15 locations in the alluvial/eluvial (A/E) part of the area in order to explore possible placer emery horizons, and to investigate the thickness of the A/E assembly and any probable faults.
