Hydrothermal Alteration of Tmolos Deposits

The Tmolos deposits extend like a continuous belt along the northern slopes of the Bozdağ Mountains. These deposits are faulted and tilted, and some hydrothermal alteration can be observed due to the effect of the water along the faulted zones. With its brownish reddish tints hydrothermal alteration to the Tmolos deposits can be observed forming an almost continuous belt at the contact point of the Tmolos deposits with the metamorphic basement which forms the nucleus of the Bozdağ Mountains, and in the vicinity of the Karadut separation fault.
