Microbial mat–related sedimentary structures are present in Lower Pleistocene mixed epiclastic-volcaniclastic sediments that host the Cape Vani manganese-oxide (-barite) deposit on NW Milos Island, Greece. Milos Island is a dormant and recently emergent 2 Ma volcano of the active Southern Aegean volcanic arc. The deposit occurs in a 1-km-long marine rift basin floored by a dacite dome. Basin fill is a >60-m-thick sequence of epiclastic glauconite-bearing sediments sandwiched between lower and upper mixed volcaniclastic sandy tuffs and epiclastic sandstones. Host siliciclastics consist of glass shards, lithic fragments, plagioclase, K-feldspar, biotite, pyroxene, and silica and clay cements, overprinted by a...
