Abstract

The Murgul deposit in the East Pontic metallotect is assigned to a subvolcanic formation connected with an Upper Cretaceous island arc volcanism developed temporally under subacrial conditions whereas the deposits at Madenkoy and Lahanos in the western part are genetically associated with a submarine hydrothermal activity in this volcanic sequence. There is a Cu-Mo belt in the northern part of the Anatolian micro plate. The Murgul deposit can be interpreted as a transition from Kuroko-type massive sulfide deposits to copper porphyries and might be considered as a new genetical model (Murgul type).
