Abstract

Volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits accompanying the Upper Cretaceous felsic rocks in the intra-arc rift zone of the Pontide palaeo-arc are common in the NE Turkey. One of them, the Kutlular (Surmene, Trabzon) deposit, is an abandoned mine within the Upper Cretaceous mafic, felsic volcanics and subvolcanic rocks.
