Abstract

Tertiary volcanism in the Ikizce region at the western edge of the eastern Pontides paleo-magmatic arc is represented by basaltic and andesitic rocks associated with sediments deposited in a shallow basin environment. The basaltic rocks contain plagioclase (An(58-80)), olivine (Fo(82-84)), clinopyroxene (Wo(44-48)En(35-42)Fs(7-17)), hornblende (Mg# = 0.68-0.76) phenocrysts, and magnetite microcrysts, whereas the andesitic rocks include plagioclase (An(25-61)), clinopyroxene (Wo(46-46)En(38-43)Fs(11-13)), hornblende (Mg# = 0.48-0.81), biotite (Mg# = 0.48-0.60) phenocrysts, titanomagnetite, apatite, and zircon microcrysts.
