The geochemistry of chromium spinel and platinum group elements (PGE) provides significant information about conditions in the mantle during the emplacement and genesis of ophiolitic complexes. The Elekdag ophiolite is a greenschist to amphibolite facies ophiolite that was emplaced onto the Sakarya Zone, in the central part of the Pontides of northern Turkey. NW-SE trending Elekdag ophiolite hosts small scale chromitite occurrences in serpentinized harzburgite and dunite, and have maximum resource of several thousands t Cr2O3.
